ENGAGE: "Equipping the Next Generation for Responsible Research and Innovation"
The Engage Project is part of the EU Science in society agenda to promote more Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). Engage is about equipping the next generation to participate in science issues to change how science is taught. Traditionally students gain an image of science as a body of content, whereas RRI deals with uncertain areas of knowledge, where values and argument matter as much as facts. This shift is hugely challenging.
