RRI Explained- A ResBios Podcast

By Christopher Styles

The field of bioscience has increasingly collided with the reality that most of us find ourselves in… with climate change, food security, health, and of course the COVID-19 pandemic, the biosciences affect us all on almost a daily basis. So it is important that scientists and researchers work hand in hand with society, to ensure that effective changes can be made to make the world a better place for all of us. Through Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) science hopes to bridge this gap... but what exactly is RRI? Find out in this series of interviews!

Six Lessons of doing Responsible Innovation in Industry
Six Lessons of doing Responsible Innovation in Industry
On this week's episode of the RRI Explained podcast, Chris Styles talks with Prof Ibo van de Poel, an expert in Ethics and Technology at the School of Technology, Policy and Management at the Delft University of Technology. We talk about Prof van de Poel's work with the PRISMA Project, a pilot study with 8 companies to help them integrate Responsible innovation into their innovation process and business practices. From this, the PRISMA Project published an article with six lessons of doing responsible innovation in industry. Music Credit:  Pamgaea by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song.

Gender Equality in Health and Social Science
Gender Equality in Health and Social Science
In this week's episode of RRI Explained, we talk to a long-time friend of ResBios, Dr Vasiliki Kiparoglou. Vasiliki is the Chief Operating Officer of the NIHR Oxford BRC and has worked extensively with a number of EU projects in regard to RRI in Health and Social Sciences, with a particular focus on gender and inclusion within this field. We discuss how a lack of representation in higher research and managerial roles in health science research is impacting the research community, and how different approaches to academic recognition may be a necessity moving forward.   Having been a key partner with the StarBios 2 project and an advisor to ResBios, it is great to catch up with Vasiliki and see how NIHR Oxford BRC is promoting the ideals of RRI and equality within the field of health science.     Music Credit:  Pamgaea by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song.

RRI Explained - Engaging research with Citizen Science
In this week's episode of RRI explained, Chris speaks to Nicola Quadri from the Time4CS. We discuss the benefits and challenges of engaging researchers in Citizen Science projects, and how the Time4CS project hopes to provide the support and guidance needed to instil these ideas into the minds of academics and students so that how researchers engage with citizens is at the forefront when planning research projects, not an afterthought.   For more information about the TIME4CS project visit their website: https://www.time4cs.eu/ Music Credit:  Pamgaea by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song...

Gender Equality and Bioscience for All
Gender Equality and Bioscience for All
In this episode of RRI Explained, Chris speaks with Dr Magdalena Żadkowska from the University of Gdansk. They talk about gender equality and how equal representation can benefit bioscience research. Gender equality is one of the key pillars for RRI and although a lot of attention has been made to the issues facing female researchers, and more recently non-binary and trans researchers, progress seems to be slow. Dr Magdalena Żadkowska talks about the issues of making a workplace welcome for all, and how equal representation can benefit science in more ways than you might have thought!   Music Credit:  Pamgaea by Kevin MacLeod  Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/4193-pamgaea License: https://filmmusic.io/standard-license

Open Access and Open Science should level the playing fields for researchers in all fields all over the world, and with the "wicked problems" we are all facing, open access is a tool that can help us all work together! But as well as opportunities, there are challenges we must address if we are to fully embrace Open Access. This week Chris talks to Prof Dimitar Djilianov from the Agrobioinstitute about Open Access and Open Science, and their place in the field of biosciences Music Credit:  Pamgaea by Kevin MacLeod  Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/4193-pamgaea License: https://filmmusic.io/standard-license
