Why join GRRIP Community?
Join the GRRIP Community and be at the forefront of driving responsible research and innovation within the marine blue economy. Together, we can shape a sustainable future for our oceans and beyond.
BE PART OF EUROPE'S LEADING MARINE AND MARITIME STAKEHOLDER COMMUNITY
By becoming a member of the GRRIP Community, you gain exclusive access to the premier European-wide network of professionals and experts working collaboratively to develop a responsible research and innovation ecosystem in the marine and maritime and BLUE ECONOMY sector. Join forces with like-minded individuals and influence policies while having a voice in legislation that shapes the industry.
The Blue Economy sectors encompass offshore renewable energy, hydrogen derived from marine energy, offshore aquaculture, sustainable tourism, and many more sectors, including all their related supply chains.
COLLABORATION WITH OTHER COMMUNITIES
As a member of the GRRIP Community, you’ll also have the opportunity to collaborate with other like-minded communities, including the ICORSA, RRING and OPUS community and MARINA platforms (LINKS TO SITES). Expanding your network and engaging with diverse stakeholders can amplify your impact on the marine and maritime sectors.
MUTUAL LEARNING ON RESPONSIBLE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION BEST PRACTICES (RRI)
Gain access to a wealth of knowledge-sharing activities and events related to responsible practices. Benefit from invaluable resources such as Open research data and Open Science, FAIR data practices, training materials, and toolkits in responsible innovation, and an extensive knowledge base, all designed to foster your understanding and application of RRI best practices.
NETWORKING AND CONSORTIUM BUILDING FOR FUTURE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION PROJECTS
Connect with renowned experts and organizations within the research and innovation ecosystem. Discover exciting opportunities for collaboration on joint projects, dedicated to industry-focused advancements or the creation of impactful programs in the research and innovation landscape. The GRRIP community comprises numerous experiences and past successes in European-funded projects, such as Horizon Europe. Participating in consortium building will serve as a significant advantage for GRRIP members.
UNVEILING THE JOURNEY: THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE GRRIP COMMUNITY
The GRRIP Marine and Maritime Community has been established as the ultimate outcome of the GROUNDING RRI PRACTICES IN RESEARCH PERFORMING ORGANISATIONS (GRRIP) Project. The project’s primary objective was to embed sustainable Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) practices in research organizations (RPO/RFO) to foster institutional and cultural transformation. After a successful journey of 5 years, the project concluded in December 2022.
GRRIP KEY OBJECTIVES
The GRRIP project aimed to implement Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) to fundamentally improve research in the Blue Economy.
European Commission Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action (2018-2022)
RRI IN MARINE RESEARCH
We embeded Responsible Research & Innovation into the governance framework of five marine and maritime institutions.
ENGAGEMENT OF ALL RELEVANT STAKEHOLDERS
We engaged the quadruple helix in all aspects of Responsible Research & Innovation governance. Academia, industry, policy, and society.
We examined how funding bodies can positively influence and encourage academia towards Responsible Research & Innovation via its funding policies and interaction.
FLAWS IN THE BLUE ECONOMY
Government boards of marine and maritime research organisations do not currently involve the public and all relevant stakeholders at early stages of research strategies.
Marine and maritime research organisations are reluctant to release their research data due to its high costs and IP concerns.
The marine and maritime research sector has a high proportion of engineers, a traditionally male career path and with low gender equality improvement to date.
