News from CEXS-UPF


The HEIRRI project is one of the first initiatives that Horizon2020 sets in motion in order to integrate RRI in university education. Its aim is to ensure that future science and engineering professionals (and from other related fields) incorporate RRI in their activity.

Gema Revuelta, director of the Studies Centre on Science, Communication and Society (SCS-UPF), from the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (DCEXS-UPF), will be the main coordinator of the project, and Núria Saladié, member of the same group, will be its project manager. The multidisciplinary team that will participate in this project, from UPF, is composed of Jordi Pérez Sánchez, Mar Carrió, and Fèlix Bosch (members of the Health Sciences Educational Research Group, from DCEX-UPF), Vladimir de Semir, Chairman of the Social and Advisory Boards of SCS-UPF, and Davinia Hernàndez-Leo,  professor at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies (DTIC-UPF).
