Title Responsible Research and Innovation in Science Education : The Solution or The Emperor’s New Clothes?
Author Lundström, Mats ; Sjöström, Jesper ; Hasslöf, Helen
Date 2017
English abstract
The European Commission has for the past 10 years emphasised the importance of “Responsible research and innovation” (RRI). RRI is an approach that anticipates and assesses potential implications and societal expectations with regard to research and innovation, with the aim to foster the design of inclusive and sustainable research and innovation. Despite efforts to support RRI projects, however, little attention has been given to RRI in science education and science education research over this period. This article problematises the concept RRI and its relation to some of the key concepts in science education, comparing and discussing it in relation to scientific literacy, nature of science and socio-scientific issues. The meeting between scientists and students is emphasised as a key issue to address, if RRI is to be regarded as an important part of science education.
