Main objective

The overall goal of the PRO-RES project is to build a research ethics and integrity framework devised cooperatively with, and seen as acceptable by, the full range of relevant stakeholders and similar to Oviedo/Helsinki guidance frameworks in the medical fields. PRO-RES will draw upon previous foundational work funded by the EC, and other national and international agencies. While linking to existing foundational work, to be durable and sustainable the outcome must also be flexible enough to meet anticipated future needs ensure that the Framework in corporates RRI principles and practices, especially regarding the governanceof RRI constellations of actors. Consequently, the framework will be ‘staged’ starting with a simple introductory level of ‘basic principles’ leading to more explanatory/background levels and ultimately more complex aids for decision-making at later stages.
