image This handbook for teachers has been created with the main aim of accommodating Research and Innovation (R&I) practices in schools, and particularly in the teaching of STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

The RRI Tools initiative is carried out by a multidisciplinary consortium consisting of 26 partners from 19 European countries, including representatives from a wide range of stakeholders (research, civil society, policy making, education and business) and led by "la Caixa" Foundation (Spain). Together, these partners bring considerable experience in all the key components of Responsible Research and Innovation across Europe. In addition, the project aims to be collaborative and inclusive in itself in order to increase creativity and shared ownership of the process. Researchers, civil society, educators, industry, and policy makers have joined forces in RRI Tools to work together on the design of a better relationship between research and innovation on the one hand and society on the other. The ultimate goal is bring into being a European community of practice that draws together all the active stakeholders in this new vision of scientific and social development, who can use and continuously contribute to the RRI Toolkit. This handbook is designed as a way to guide and support educators along the process of introducing RRI in the classroom through innovative science pedagogical methods and by offering a range of inspiring resources for designing and implementing class activities.
