The TeRRItoria project organizes a series of online webinars with the aim to provide some theoretical means as well as practical experiences that are useful to design institutional changes in territories to implement effective RRI principles into R&I ecosystems. More specifically:
- How to engage citizens in Regional Development policies: Tuesday 18th of January 2022, from 14:00 to 16:00 CET
- Institutional changes for Responsible Research and Innovation: Thursday 20th of January 2022, from 14:00 to 16:00 CET
- The way forward, Tuesday 25th of January 2022, from 14:00 to 16:00 CET
Institutional Changes for Responsible Research and Innovation
After a decade Responsible Research and innovation is an operative concept that it is present in big programmes such Horizon Europe but as well implemented in small scale. How it is possible to develop RRI in the local or regional level? Are there particular constraints associated to the smaller scale? There are good examples of initiatives to reinforce social systems with institutionalised collective co-responsibility as a driving force for socially desirable innovation. The Science with and for Society (SwafS) programme of H2020 has supported many local implementations of RRI that will provide a legacy with institutional changes. There are European territories that have effectively design organisational innovation and institutional changes in governance that will last and that are particularly useful to generate impact. This session will discuss those results in RRI implementation that can be immediately applied at the territorial level.
About TeRRItoria project
TeRRItoria is a Horizon 2020 project which aims to position regions and local authorities as places for science governance, education, public engagement, ethics, and open access. TeRRItoria operates in a context of transition in European society, which is often critical. For territorial governance, this shift and transition can be a challenge to the usual strategies and measures fostering economic development and social cohesion.
