ICGEB Partners EU STARBIOS2 Project

Twelve partners, 4 years' duration, 9 action plans and Euro 3.5 million funding, the STARBIOS2, "Structural Transformation to Attain Responsible BIOSciences" is a project coordinated by Prof. Vittorio Colizzi at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata."

Dr. Luiz Zerbini, Interim Director and Group Leader at ICGEB Cape Town. and Dr. Mariet Wium, Postdoc in the Cancer Genomics Research Group comprise the South African team working on this project in collaboration with European Partners in Italy, Bulgaria, UK, Germany, Slovenia and Poland, Support Partners in Denmark, Italy and France and other International Parnters in Brazil, Italy and the USA.

The general aim of STARBIOS2, which commenced on 1 May 2016, is to contribute to the advancement of the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) strategy which underpins Horizon 2020

The project will design and implement Action Plans oriented to attain RRI structural change in six institutions active in the field of biosciences. The five key RRI elements that underpin each AP are Education, Open Access, Ethics, Public Engagement and Gender.

STARBIOS2 will contribute to the advancements of the RRI strategy by fostering structural change in research institutions, to cope with one of the main risks for European research: its inadequate connection with society.

The experience produced within the APs will be used to define guidelines and develop a model aimed at supporting RRI structural change in this field in Europe and globally, referred to as the RRI bioscience model.

As an international partner, the ICGEB will not only actively participate in the technical assistance during the APs but will also implement the developed RRI bioscience model.
