Summary/Abstract: In the context of the world evolution and global changing, the education and research have the responsibility to give new contributions for the society, so that future generations can inhabit in a better world. Experts in educational and research areas are committed in this work, having also as target to deliver innovative methods suitable for non-formal education, answering so to the societal challenges. As the large use of renewable energy is seen like a main key for the sustainable development, teaching the secondary school students concerning the basics of renewable energy and its potential, is working in the interest of sustainability, which has already become a special issue and a necessary frame for dissemination and discussion of the relationship between Responsible Research and Innovation and industry. The paper illustrates the way in which interactive knowledge is transferred in non-formal activities dedicated to students, having solar energy as main thematic area. The innovative feature of activities is represented by learning and acceptance of the functionality and advantages of solar energy systems, by direct experimenting in a special research space and power energy production, at the Scientific and Technological Institute of Multidisciplinary Research (ICSTM) of Valahia University Targoviste. The students were introduced in the “solar world”, in order to understand the physical and energetically processes, demonstrated initially at the micro-system level, with the students working individually with educational solar kits, and then validated at the macro-system level, through the interactive graphical demonstrative operating mode of the solar generators integrated into the building.
