The NewHoRRIzon project published its first policy brief, coordinated and written by Robert Braun of IHS and co-authored by Michael Bernstein of Genok with contributions from the NewHoRRIzon team. The policy brief aims at offering evidence based policy recommendations, informed by the first inputs of NewHoRRIzon research efforts across 19 social labs. The early research highlight steps that the EU has already initiated to advance RRI in H2020 programming. However, findings also point to numerous challenges for widespread and sustained implementation across H2020 programming and projects. First results indicate a range of policies that could be pursued to build capacity of the European R&I enterprise to realize RRI. The recommendations include a focus on capacity building and training of programme officers, evaluators, researchers, innovators, and stakeholders to learn more about ways that science and technology are embedded in society.
