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!

Building an Ethics Governance House
The RRI Explained Podcast is back with something a little different. This time Chris Styles speaks with Associate Professor Elsa González-Esteban, a project coordinator with the ETHNA System project.  Elsa and Chris talk about how the Ethna System provides both a foundation and the flexibility needed to create bespoke ethical governance systems, across Higher Education, Funding and Research Centres, and how the other pillars of RRI inform governance.

Education and a better understanding of RRI and Bioscience
In this episode of #RRIExplained, Chris Styles speaks with Saskia Tenberg from the Universität Bremen, about how the principles of RRI needs to be taught throughout a person's life, to cement these ideals before misconceptions and bias can set in.

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 Science and RRI in RESBIOS
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

RRI Explained- A new podcast from ResBios
Join our host Chris Styles as he explores the interconnection between biosciences and society, and how Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) can help bridge the gap.  Chris Styles is a project officer for ResBios, an EU funded project that aims to embed RRI practices into bioscience research institutes across Europe.   In this podcast, Chris will interview key members of the ResBios team to discuss the five main pillars of RRI; Ethics, Open Access, Gender, Public Engagement, and Education. As well as inviting coordinators from other RRI projects and bioscience researchers, to share their experience of RRI.  So why not join us as we explain RRI.
