How can we contribute to new designs of Research, Development and Innovation by the plastic industries in Lower Austria (and their value chains networks) to achieve a CO2 neutral economy?
Three stakeholder workshops work out future scenarios and derive consequences with regard to RRI in each territory. The first workshop is about the environmental analysis of the plastic industry and its contribution to a CO2 neutral economy.

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).
One of the main activities of the SeeRRI project is to organize stakeholder workshops in the three pilot territories: Nordland, B30, and ecoplus. In Bologna, the groundwork was laid for identifying key actors in the R&I ecosystems. The results of an initial mapping exercise were presented, and workshop participants worked together to narrow down the range of potential stakeholders to involve in future workshops as well as to select relevant influencing factors in the regional ecosystems.
This workshop aims first to explore and demonstrate the potential of engaging citizens and decision-makers with science to address the challenges European regions and cities are facing. It will give an overview on ‘citizen science’ and its contribution to science, society and evidence-based policy making through providing examples of successful projects. ‘EU-Citizen.Science’, funded by the European Commission, under the Horizon 2020 ‘Science with and for Society’ programme, aims to mainstream citizen science in Europe and present how cities and their citizens can already benefit from their outcomes.
We will also present the initiative ‘Science meets Parliaments & Regions’, which brings researchers and decision-makers together, and enhances the role of science in the policy-making process across fields at local, regional and European level. We will describe an innovative tool for co-creation of public policies involving the quadruple helix (government, academia, business and civil society) in order to produce sound solutions to local issues.
Finally, the workshop will showcase new ways of co-creation with multi-stakeholders in the process of developing Regional Research and Innovation strategies. SeeRRI, project funded by the European Commission, focuses on establishing responsible research & innovation ecosystems by integrating Smart Specialisation Strategy and RRI. TeRRItoria tackles a double challenge by bringing RRI at the forefront of the debate for developing local and regional R&I capacities and using RRI as a springboard for stakeholder involvement in regional R&I strategies under the framework of Smart Specialisation Strategies.
Space for debate with the audience will be devoted during the second half of the session.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement nº 824588.
