After an inspiring two-day conference in Barcelona, the SeeRRI project has published the final version of the SeeRRI booklet: Bringing responsibility and RRI into regional planning – from theory to practice.
In 4 sections, the booklet lays out the motivation and journey of the SeeRRI project and its approach to integrating RRI principles into regional planning and smart specialisation policies, but also the perspectives of other ongoing EU funded projects – TeRRIFICA, TeRRItoria, TRANSFORM, CHERRIES, RRI2SCALE, TetRRIs, MARIE and DigiTeRRI – working with RRI at regional level. At the same time, the brochure gives an outlook on the road ahead. Seven experts comment on how the legacy of these EUfunded projects can be leveraged to create responsible and sustainable R&I ecosystems for the future, and which dangers and risks we need to look out for.
It is with great pleasure that we at TRANSFORM took part in this exercise, sharing our insights on integrating RRI into regional R&I governance and lessons learned from experimenting with three different citizen engagement methodologies in three European territories – Lombardy (Italy), Brussels-Capital (Belgium) and Catalonia (Spain).
