New findings from the PATTERN survey: Exploring the perceptions of and existing learning opportunities for researchers on Open and Responsible Research and Innovation (Open RRI)
The survey was led by the PATTERN team at the Centre for Science Studies
From March to April 2023 PATTERN launched a survey to explore the perception of and existing learning opportunities for reseachers on Open RRI.
The Survey was led by PATTERN's team at the Centre for Science Studies (CSS), Aarhus University: Cristina Lagido, Gitte Kragh, and Kristian H. Nielsen.
The survey provides interesting insights into the various aspects, types, modalities, and needs of researchers when it comes to Open RRI training.

PATTERN's primary aim is to promote the practice of Open and Responsible Research and Innovation (Open RRI) by developing and piloting training activities for researchers at all stages of their careers.
The project is in the finalisation phase of its "Consolidation of Knowledge" stage. During this phase, it conducted a systematic mapping and a comprehensive analysis of the state-of-the-art learning opportunities for researchers in Open RRI. These efforts were integrated with mutual learning activities that identify emerging practices and barriers in Open RRI practices.
What's next for PATTERN?
In the next phase of the project, the PATTERN Consortium will work on developing training programs that are co-designed and fine-tuned to respond perfectly to the needs of end-users across two learning cycles.
All the training programs will be openly available on the upcoming PATTERN platform, a one-stop-shop for accessing materials and curricula related to Open RRI. Interested? Subscribe to the PATTERN newsletter here!
What is the role of Aarhus University in PATTERN?
The PATTERN team at Aarhus University leads Work Package 1 (WP1) in the project. The overall objective of WP1 is to map and analyze the state-of-the-art of learning opportunities for researchers on Open RRI.
Based on the analysis (incl. quality assessment) and additional mutual learning events, WP1 will identify the potential for new training activities for researchers at all stages of their careers. WP1 will build the knowledge base needed for developing, implementing, evaluating and communicating training modules in WPs 2-4.
The results of WP1 will be available to the public at the end of 2023 in a report taht will describe and analyse existing training activities based on quality assessments.
