20 Tips & Tricks for Responsible Research & Innovation
Tips & Tricks are series of thought-provoking recommendations for collaboration, innovation and action.
Tips & Tricks for Responsible Research & Innovation offer 20 provocations to inspire and challenge you as you reflect on what it means to practice Responsible Research and Innovation: from the theories that underpin it to the way you carry out your work.
They are presented as a pack of cards. Each ‘tip’ card contains a short statement and a colourful illustration, while other cards contain instructions for activities to spark discussion. The provocations of the ‘tip’ cards include the idea that ‘the ends and the means are equally important’ and a reminder that ‘the easiest to reach may not benefit the most.’
The cards have been created and designed by Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC), in collaboration with the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) and Thess-Ahall. The wording and illustrations were inspired by learning from the SISCODE and New HoRRizon projects, workshops with Responsible Research & Innovation researchers and practitioners, and KWMC’s practice and research as Bristol Living Lab.
KWMC has been co-designing Tips & Tricks resources since 2014, when they worked with academics and community activists in Bristol, UK, to explore how they could better understand each other’s ways of working. Current KWMC ‘Tips & Tricks’ resources include:
- Tips & Tricks from Community Activists
- Tips & Tricks for Academics Working with Communities
- Tips & Tricks for Artists and Communities Working Together
- Tips & Tricks for Living Labs (a collaboration with the European Network of Living Labs)
- Tips & Tricks for Building a Sustainable Living Lab (a collaboration with iSCAPE and the European Network of Living Labs)
Tips and Tricks aren’t a recipe or a series of rules to follow: they are designed to prompt discussion and reflection (individually and in groups) and facilitate the sharing of good practice, the discovery of new perspectives, and the exploration of what their 20 provocations mean to you.
Cards are available online – both for virtual use as well as in printable format: https://padlet.com/
