TeRRItoria

The 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. TeRRItoria involves 10 partner organisations and is coordinated by the South East European Research Centre.
