RRI2SCALE has empowered the innovation ecosystems and embeds RRI elements in R&I governance in four pilot European regions: Vestland (Norway), Overijssel (Netherlands), Kriti (Greece) and Galicia (Spain). The goal has been to achieve sustainable and inclusive regional growth and smart specialisation based on responsible innovation in the domains of smart energy – smart cities – smart mobility.
Our testbed sites have offered wide coverage at the European level in terms of socio-cultural, economic, and political characteristics, thus maximising the project’s replication potential.

Public engagement has been central to the RRI2SCALE project. During its lifetime, the project engaged more than 2,000 citizens from the pilot regions during different participatory and co-creation activities. More here.
In the framework of stakeholder engagement, as series of regional co-creation and validation workshops took place in 2022 in Galicia, Overijssel, Vestland, and Kriti, to allow stakeholders to ideate and co-design regional S3 roadmaps that integrate the principles of RRI in the three smart fields.
As the partnership remains committed to continuous citizen participation, RRI2SCALE urges citizens to get in contact with their respective regional authorities and learn about the outcomes of the project.

Discover the RRI2SCALE Guidebook – “Participatory and Responsible Policy-Design for Smart Cities, Transport and Energy”
Authors: Margarita Angelidou, Christos Politis
The RRI2SCALE Guidebook supports policy-makers involving citizens in designing policies related to technology sectors. It proposes a five-phase methodology that was implemented and piloted in the RRI2SCALE project.
We envision this Guidebook to provide inspiration for other regions and project consortia that wish to adopt the RRI2SCALE approach.
