PATTERN Project 2023: Empowering Open RRI with Innovative Training Programs

In January 2023, the PATTERN project – Empowering Open and Responsible Research and Innovation – was officially kicked off in Rome, at the premises of APRE, the project's coordinator.
PATTERN's primary aim is to promote the practice of Open and Responsible Research and Innovation (Open RRI) by developing and piloting training activities for researchers at all stages of their careers.

The project is in the finalisation phase of its "Consolidation of Knowledge" stage. During this phase, it conducted a systematic mapping and a comprehensive analysis of the state-of-the-art learning opportunities for researchers in Open RRI. These efforts were integrated with mutual learning activities that identify emerging practices and barriers in Open RRI practices.

As part of its initial phase, the PATTERN project recently conducted a survey to explore the perception of and existing learning opportunities for researchers in Open RRI.
The survey provides interesting insights into the various aspects, types, modalities, and needs of researchers when it comes to Open RRI training.

What's next for PATTERN?

In the next phase of the project, the PATTERN Consortium will work on developing training programs that are co-designed and fine-tuned to respond perfectly to the needs of end-users across two learning cycles.

All the training programs will be openly available on the upcoming PATTERN platform, a one-stop-shop for accessing materials and curricula related to Open RRI. Interested? Subscribe to the PATTERN newsletter here!
