The second batch of DITOs policy briefs focuses on four themes: Brief 1 - Environmental sustainability: This brief follows up the policy brief #1 on BioBlitzes and focuses on the pilot study conducted to develop a common evaluation framework for the City Nature Challenge (CNC) 2018 in Europe. Brief 2 - Biodesign: This brief follows up the policy brief #1 on Do It Yourself Biotechnology (DIYBio). It assesses the potential and challenges of biodesign citizen science for education and how it can contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Brief 3 - RRI indicators that reflect the practices of public engagement organisations: This third brief on the overarching topic of RRI is focussed on enriching the conversation and applications of RRI frameworks, in particular how they can move from being used as tools for assessment by funders and evaluators to being useful guidelines for personal and organisational learning and development. The brief presents results from in-depth conversations with facilitators and insights from reviewing RRI indicators in a way that reflects their practices. Brief 4 - RRI - linking Citizen Science and Open Science: This second policy brief on the topic of RRI is focussed on relations between Citizen Science and Open Science. It draws on initiatives implemented in Europe to identify synergies and future areas of work. In response to request from the mid-term project review for more evidence on inclusion impacts of the project, we have decided to diversify the types of policy briefs we will produce. In addition to ‘classic’ policy briefs aimed at giving an introduction and overview of a given topic (Brief 2 and 4) we now also offer ‘Research Insights’ that are based on gathering more thorough evidence from within the project and providing it to decision-makers (Brief 1 and 3). Like the first batch of briefs, a community-oriented approach was chosen for defining the specific topics of each brief and elaborating the content. Brief 1 has been developed by the ECSA working group on BioBlitzes, Brief 2 in cooperation with the in ECSA working group on Citizen Science for Learning and Education. Brief 3 draws on collaborative evaluation work within the DITOs consortium. Brief 4 was created together with the ECSA working group on Citizen Science and Open Science. The timeline of each policy brief has been adapted to be responsive to schedules of contributors, political dynamics and external demands. Brief 4 was already launched in February 2018. Brief 3 is finished and will be designed and published in the next weeks. Brief 1 and 2 are presented as an advanced draft version. Their final review will be conducted in workshops with the respective working groups and external experts at the International ECSA Conference in Geneva next week. This deliverable concludes the successful second stage of WP4 facilitating policy engagement for RRI. The final batch of policy briefs (M36) will further expand this work on biodesign, environmental sustainability and additional aspects of RRI. DITOs ‘Policy Briefs 2’ is Deliverable 4.2 (D4.2) from the coordination and support action (CSA) Doing It Together science (DITOs), grant agreement 709443.
