Active and Healthy Ageing in the framework of Responsible Research and Innovation

Active and Healthy Ageing in the framework of Responsible Research and Innovation

Activity details

This synergy is based on the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation applied to Active and Healthy Ageing. This concept has been defined as “a transparent, interactive process by which societal actors and innovators become mutually responsive to each other with a view to the (ethical) acceptability, sustainability and societal desirability of the innovation process and its marketable products (in order to allow a proper embedding of scientific and technological advances in our society)”(von Schomberg, 2012). The current configuration of the concept in Europe considers six key areas (European Commission, 2014) that integrate the demands observed by the D4 Action Groups and pinpoints new ones that should be included in the dialogue among the different action groups of the EIP AHA such as Governance, Public Engagement, Gender Equality, Science Education, Open Science/Open access and Ethics. With this framework in mind this synergy pretends to identify how the organizations in the EIP on AHA are contributing to each of those 6 key areas and to create a database of promising practices in responsible research and innovation for active and healthy ageing. This database, which will be integrated in the EIP AHA repository of innovative practices, will serve to identify the current state of the actions and initiatives of RRI in AHA and to provide a roadmap of the future development of the concept.

Current Status

Ongoing
In the call for commitments of the EIP on AHA launched by the European Commission at the beginning of 2016, 135 organizations expressed that their commitment was somehow related with the RRI & AHA synergy. Later on, during the months of June and July 2016 an online questionnaire was sent to those organizations to gather information about practices undertaken by them which could be considered relevant in the field of RRI. A total of 39 practices were submitted via the online questionnaire by 35 organizations. In order to assure the correct implementation and sustainability in time of the collection of promising practices during the months of October and November several Skype meetings have been organized with the team of the PROEIPAHA. As a result, a procedure to integrate the RRI practices in the EIP AHA repository of innovative practices have been outlined. Before the end of the year, we will inform to the organizations which submitted good practices about the need of including further details about them on the repository. Therefore, the practices submitted will be evaluated according with the general procedure of the repository which has been updated to include a category on Responsible Research and Innovation. This will allow us to identify the current state of the actions and initiatives related with the concept of RRI in the framework of Active and Healthy Ageing and to identify potential partners to identify the more urgent actions to be undertaken on RRI for AHA. The repository will also serve to monitor the evolution of RRI initiatives.
