The PRO-RES Project

PROmoting integrity in the use of RESearch results (PRO-RES)

PRO-RES project aims to produce a guidance framework regarding the delivery of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), which is required from researchers and research funding and performing organizations (RFPO), in order to balance political, institutional and professional contradictions and constraints.
This framework aims to:

• cover the spectrum of non-medical sciences and
• offer practical solutions for all stakeholders, that will comply with the highest standards of research ethics and integrity.

In terms of post-2020 European strategic funding policy this offers a strong and sustainable contribution to RRI via a comprehensive ethics and integrity framework similar to Oviedo/ Helsinki which is being constructed in negotiation with relevant stakeholders.
