GRRIP aims to ground sustainable Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) practices in the marine sector through institutional and cultural change. It takes five marine organisations as case studies, of which WavEC belong to one. GRRIP recognises that action plans for change in RRI should be tailored to each sector and organisation. The first stage towards this is auditing people, practices and procedures within each organisation which support RRI currently. The second stage is identifying gaps or needs for grounding RRI more sustainably and adding these to the audit results. The full audit will be used to design action plans for change in RRI.
- Development of an action plan for institutional and cultural changes at WavEC which includes, for example, the promotion of gender equality, interaction with society, knowledge sharing, etc.
