Being a collaborative-oriented project, RRI2SCALE creates bridges with sister SwafS and RRI-related projects. Below you can find the list of our synergizing projects, explore them, and help us foster our RRI web at European and international level.
TeRRItoria (“Territorial Responsible Research and Innovation Through the involvement of local R&I Actors”) is an H2020 project which aims to see regions and local authorities implement aspects of RRI in their R&I infrastructures. By linking Responsible Research & Innovation to regions and territorial governance (“Territorial RRI”), the project assumes that the competitiveness of its participating territories will be fostered while allowing local and regional governance actors to navigate the aforementioned context of restless transition.
GRACE (“Grounding RRI Actions to Achieve Institutional Changes in European Research Funding and Performing Organisations”) is a H2020 project that aims to spread and embed Responsible Research and Innovation in the European Research Area through the development of a set of Grounding Actions leading to fundamental RRI-oriented institutional changes in six Research Funding and Performing Organisations. Its approach is based on intense mutual learning among RRI experts and implementing organisations.
SeeRRI (“Building Self-Sustaining Research and Innovation Ecosystems in Europe through Responsible Research and Innovation”) is a H2020 project that develops a framework for integrating the principles of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) into regional Smart Specialisation policy. SeeRRI is a project in which 12 European organizations and 3 European territories (Nordland in Norway, B30 in Catalonia, Spain, and ecoplus from Lower Austria) work together to develop such a framework based on the principles of RRI. The goal of SeeRRI is to work with the policymakers and other regional actors to figure out how best to integrate RRI principles into the smart specialization policies of the regions.
DigiTeRRI (“Responsible Research and Innovation Approach for Transitioning the Traditional Industry Regions into Digitalised Industry Territories”) is a H2020 project is focused on co-creating a framework and roadmaps for a responsible transition to self-sustaining, digitalized industrial R&I ecosystems. It addresses the challenges in the interplay between the quadruple helix actors to initiate openness, democratic accountability and responsiveness in a process that will, in turn, promote resilience within these new, digitalized R&I ecosystems in 3 regions (Grand Est, Värmland in Sweden, and Styria in Austria).
TeRRIFICA (“Territorial Responsible Research and Innovation Fostering Innovative Climate Action”) is an EU-funded project that aims to influence climate change mitigation and adaptation policies and foster competence for climate change adaptation and mitigation in six European regions with a specific focus on Responsible Research and Innovation and the co-creation of knowledge. In a trans-disciplinary partnership, TeRRIFICA involves six European countries, bringing together three research institutions, three non-profit organizations, one public association of universities, and one public institution for science promotion.
RIGHT is an Interreg North Sea Region (NSR) co-funded project which aims to enhance regional innovation support capacity to increase long-term innovation levels and support smart specialization strategies. To achieve this, RIGHT concentrates its efforts on developing the skills of the workforce relevant for SMEs in the participating regions within the energy and blue sectors. The energy and blue sectors will play an important part in the years to come and will have to adapt to future skill requirements. RIGHT´s goal is to provide information and call attention to the importance of the skills evolution within these sectors. The purpose is to reduce the skills gap and increase competitiveness and innovation capacity within the participating regions.
Apart from our synergies, there are several projects, initiatives and organisations that are relevant to RRI2SCALE project. Below you can find a small selection of key initiatives.
