The goal of the project IRRESISTIBLE is to design activities that foster the involvement of students and the public in the process of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).

The consortium aims to raise awareness on RRI by increasing pupils' content knowledge about research. This will be achieved by combining formal (school) and informal (science centre, museum or festival) educational approaches to introduce relevant topics and cutting edge research into the programme. By this methodology pupils will be familiarized with science, thus fostering a discussion on RRI issues.

IRRESISTIBLE is a project on teacher training, combining formal and informal learning focused on Responsible Research and Innovation.

It is a coordination and support action under FP7-SCIENCE-IN-SOCIETY-2013-1, ACTIVITY 5.2.2 Young people and science: Topic SiS.2013.2.2.1-1 Raising youth awareness to Responsible Research and Innovation through Inquiry ased Science Education.

This project has received funding from the European Union.s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 612367.
