Responsible research & innovation (RRI) Project directory

COMPASS has compiled an overview of RRI projects and initiatives carried out in Europe over the course of the past ten years. The COMPASS project directory below contains 130 publicly funded RRI projects in Europe. Our project directory aims to facilitate the search for RRI projects in Europe. You can download search instructions here.

For a quick look at the key figures check out our factsheet. For a detailed outline, have a look at the COMPASS policy paper, which maps out approaches, objectives and thematic priorities of publicly funded RRI projects at European level, and describes their spread across Europe via budget shares and numbers of participations.

You can find more information, results and project output on responsible innovation in the European Commission’s database CORDIS, as well as the RRI Toolkit!

Over the course of the project, it has become evident that rules, regulations and funding criteria could function as external incentives to implement responsible innovation in SMEs. The Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), as coordinator of the COMPASS project, has therefore developed recommendations for EU research and innovation policy, with support of the COMPASS High Level Expert Advisory Board.


Project Acronym: CARERA
Project Title: Information Day for Hungarian students and young researchers on career possibilities in the European Research
Funding Programme: Horizon 2020
Responsible Innovation Dimension: , ,
Description: "The Hungarian higher education system is renowned for its excellence, both in technical and social sciences. However, many graduates do not find appropriate jobs in the country. Young researchers are often employed in poorly paid temporary positions with a low chance of finding stable employment in a reasearch institution. For them, information and assistance with European opportunities is crucial and can be instrumental in the continuation of their career as a researcher. The Association of Hungarian Women in Science – a Civil Society Organisation – together with EURAXESS Bridgehead Bay Zoltan Ltd. and the Central European University (CEU) will jointly organise a series of Inspiring Science Workshops and a large-scale ERA Mobility and Career Day in Budapest to enhance the career prospects of graduate students and young researchers from all fields of science. The events will be hosted by the partners with the latter taking place in the campus of CEU. Research organisations from several countries, international organisations and multinational companies will be invited to inform the participants on European research funding and career opportunities offered by them in a job fair format. Pre-arranged interactive meetings between the employers and potential employees will complement the fair. Practical workshops on career development (CV drafting, interview tactics, presentation skills), information sessions addressing the EURAXESS portal, career resources, personalized assistance tools to overcome the barriers of researchers’ mobility will maximize the knowledge of young researchers and students and help them starting a career in European research institutions. A workshop on Responsible Research and Innovation, with special regard to gender issues, will target all participants.The project will offer students and young researchers in Hungary better knowledge about European job and funding opportunities, and will contribute to providing more researchers for ERA.
