DCEXS-UPF: Highlights of the 2nd HEIRRI Conference in Vienna

News from DCEXS-UPF

The second and last HEIRRI Conference celebrated in Vienna on April 27th 2018 has gathered around 150 people from 43 countries under the title “Education towards a responsible society, transforming universities through RRI”.

Professionals from all over the world have met in Vienna and the result has been an enriching and thought-provoking conference full of participation and interactive sessions. The event counted with three keynote speeches: Rolf Tarrach (European University Association), Melanie Smallman (University College London) and Vincent Blok (Wageningen University). Moreover, there was a poster panel with 13 participants and a speed-dating session with 17 initiatives.

The conference was a great success. Participants expressed their positive opinions via Twitter (go to the compilation of tweets here) and also personally to many HEIRRI representatives. Not only was the content well planned, but also the discussions and initiatives that were given voice were key to the topic at hand.
