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 project has 12 partners from 5 countries
(Norway, Austria, Spain, Israel, Italy)

SeeRRI framework is built based on 3 pilot territories, and also involves a Network of Affiliated
Territories (NAT) for comments and feedbacks.
