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.
The SeeRRI project will be presented at the European Week of Regions and Cities 2019 in Brussels on 9 October 2019, in the session “Science for Citizens: how science meets regions and cities”.
Last 18 th September the SeeRRI facilitator team met in Bologna to attend the first RRI facilitator training session. Facilitators from the 3 territories (B-30, Norland and Ecoplus) and from different backgrounds (researchers, companies and governments) worked together through participatory methodologies to gain knowledge about the general concept of RRI.
SeeRRI’s first stakeholder workshop was successfully held in Bologna, Italy, on September 18-20, 2019. The event was hosted by the University of Bologna (UNIBO).
