The TeRRItoria vision is to tackle a double challenge: to bring RRI at the forefront of the debate for developing local an regional R&I capacities; and to use RRI as a springboard for broadening the number of stakeholders involved in the process for enhancing the regional research and innovation strategies under the framework of S3. The overall objective of the project is to experiment with the adoption of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) approach in European regional and territorial R&I systems. TeRRItoria is based on the idea that RRI approaches, policies and practices, developed so far at the level of research institutions, may be adapted to that of regional and territorial governance. Thus the project will contribute to developing what can be called “Territorial RRI” by developing a set of transformative experiments in 5 European selected territories – 4 regions and 1 municipality (ReThe project’s vision is to tackle a double challenge: To bring RRI at the forefront of the debate for developing local and regional R&I capacities and to address the limits and barriers of the process for developing regional innovation strategies with a particular emphasis on S3, using RRI as a springboard for public engagement, social innovation, openness to diversity and curiosity. This will be done by developing a set of Transformative Experiments in 5 European selected territories - 4 regions and 1 municipality. The key objectives are: to introduce concrete and measurable changes in the R&I systems of the 5 above mentioned territories, so as to make them more inclusive; to introduce concrete and measurable institutional changes in the territorial organisations involved in the project, so that RRI becomes an embedded element of their planning process; to develop a better understanding of how RRI can be adapted at the territorial level and finally to contribute to the enhancement of the Smart Specialisation Strategy process through exploring synergies with RRI.
- H2020-EU.5.f. - Develop the governance for the advancement of responsible research and innovation by all stakeholders, which is sensitive to society needs and demands and promote an ethics framework for research and innovation
- H2020-EU.5.c. - Integrate society in science and innovation issues, policies and activities in order to integrate citizens' interests and values and to increase the quality, relevance, social acceptability and sustainability of research and innovation outcomes in various fields of activity from social innovation to areas such as biotechnology and nanotechnology
