STARBIOS2 Structural Transformation to Attain Responsible BIOSciences

Funded under the Horizon 2020 programme STARBIOS2 will contribute to the advancements of the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) strategy by fostering structural change in research organisations to cope with inadequate connection between research and society, focusing on: Education, Open Access, Ethics, Public Engagement and Gender.

The knowledge gain from developing the action plans will be used to develop a tailored model for bioscience research that aims at supporting RRI structural change in this field worldwide.

The final workshop of the three-year project will take place in Cape Town, with representatives from the twelve partner states from across Europe, North and South America and South Africa in attendance. ICGEB Cape Town is organising the Workshop.
