Project Goals

PHASE 1 – Consolidation of Knowledge: PATTERN will start with a systematic mapping and a comprehensive analysis of the state-of-the-art of learning opportunities for researchers on Open RRI, integrated by mutual learning activities and co-creation workshops to identify emerging practices and barriers in Open RRI practices.

PHASE 2 – Developing PATTERN Training Activities and Platform: PATTERN has identified 8 main transferable skills in the context of open and responsible research, each covered by a PATTERN Consortium partner:

  • Open Access
  • Research Integrity
  • Management and Leadership
  • FAIR data management
  • Science Communication
  • Dissemination and Exploitation of results
  • Citizen Science
  • Gender, non-discrimination and inclusion in research

PHASE 3 – Testing PATTERN Training Modules: PATTERN training will be co-designed and fine-tuned within PATTERN Consortium to perfectly respond to the needs of end-users across 2 learning cycles, each 12 months long.

PHASE 4 – Evidence for policy development: PATTERN will build upon knowledge and analysis carried out during the project lifetime to develop a set of policy recommendations addressing authorities and institutions responsible for researcher training.
