Recommendations

Recommendations for proactive and anticipatory policy making

led by University of Oxford, UOXF, United Kingdom

The first action, led by University of Oxford, will generate recommendations for producing policy briefs. WP5 will extensively use a Delphi methodology throughout its tasks to assess policy makers’ attitudes and arrive at a general consensus based on their understanding of needs in light of the input about the findings from WP1 to WP4. The recommendations will be further discussed with the RRI community through interviews and research and education institutions representatives in the dissemination activities in WP6. The second action, led by Kaunas University of Technology, concerns the analysis of the RRI frameworks and aims to revise the MoRRI indicators.

Objectives

The objectives of WP5 are:

  • a) To invite policy makers to generate a set of considerations from their perspective on the various aspects of the FEDORA concept;
  • b) To engage policy makers with several FEDORA outputs;
  • c) To compile policy makers’ recommendations for a synthesis of theoretical constructs or frameworks able not only to describe what happens in a specific innovative teaching/learning experience but also to provide an interpretation of why, when and how that happened;
  • d) To offer guidelines to research and educational institutions to futurize Science Education;
  • e) To develop guidelines to renew science education for science education researchers, teachers, educators in formal, non-formal and informal contexts.

FEDORA, Future-oriented Science Education to enhance Responsibility and Engagement in the society of acceleration and uncertainty, is a 3-year EU-funded project. It started in September 2020 and will deploy its activities until August 2023. It gathers 6 partner institutions from 5 European countries.
FEDORA has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement no. 872841
