The UAB Doctoral School has organised a competition for its PhD students. The challenge consists in an oral presentation of their research, lasting a maximum of four minutes and aimed at a general public. All those interested can sign up from 27 February to 21 March.
Responsible PhD: Integrating Responsible Research and Innovation in PhD Research
The aim of the course was to introduce PhD students to different concepts of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and reflect on how to make a PhD research project more responsible.
The training was divided in two sessions. During the first session, PhD students discussed several concepts of RRI in groups through different activities and case examples. During the second session, participants presented their research projects and, based on the feedback of the participants, identified possibilities to make their own research project more responsible.
The course “Responsible PhD: Integrating Responsible Research and Innovation in PhD Research” counted with the participation of 15 PhD students, all of which came from various fields of research (medicine, environmental sciences, history, sociology, law, psychology, computer science, chemistry).
Virtual events have a great potential to become the new norm among academics, according to the results from a survey that was filled out by the participants of the ICTA2020 conference on Low-Carbon Lifestyles, in which they shared their experiences.
