Building Self-Sustaining Research and Innovation Ecosystems in Europe through
Responsible Research and Innovation
The SeeRRI project
SeeRRI is a joint project of 12 partner organizations from five countries, financed by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 programme. In SeeRRI we are developing a framework for integrating the principles of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) into regional Smart Specialisation policy. In a nutshell, we want to find a new way for all actors to collaborate in research and innovation activities based on a responsible mindset. While doing so, we are also implementing the principles of RRI in our own organizations.
SeeRRI framework is built based on 3 pilot territories, and also involves a Network of Affiliated
Territories (NAT) for comments and feedbacks.
Mapping RRI Dimensions and Sustainability into Regional Development Policies and Urban Planning Instruments
The article provides a methodology to map the inclusion of RRI dimensions into regional development policies and spatial planning instruments, in order to detect integrated strategies and elements that are sustainable, open, inclusive, anticipative and responsive.
Under the title “Development of Futures for the Polymer Industry in Lower Austria”, the two-day event will examine how the local polymer industry can make significant contributions to reducing CO2 emissions, promote environmentally friendly production processes and save resources.
In October 2019, SeeRRI project was presented at the workshop “Science for Citizens: how science meets regions and cities”, which showcase new ways of co-creation with multi-stakeholders in the process of developing Regional Research and Innovation strategies. SeeRRI, a project funded by the European Commission, focuses on establishing responsible research and innovation ecosystems by integrating Smart Specialisation Strategy and RRI.
