The goal of the project IRRESISTIBLE is to design activities that foster the involvement of students and the public in the process of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
The consortium aims to raise awareness on RRI by increasing pupils' content knowledge about research. This will be achieved by combining formal (school) and informal (science centre, museum or festival) educational approaches to introduce relevant topics and cutting edge research into the programme. By this methodology pupils will be familiarised with science, thus fostering a discussion on RRI issues.
