Our sister project TetRRIS is hosting an event on “What can Responsible Research and Innovation offer Smart Specialisation Strategies in their reorientation towards sustainability?” as a side event of the European Week of Regions and Cities.
This workshop will take stock of some experiences related to promoting Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) to Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3) in their reorientation towards sustainability, and will address how RRI can be better integrated into regional innovation and development policies.
The event will feature keynote addresses by Katerina Ciampi Stancova (OECD) on how different policy paradigms (RRI, TI, SI) can help reorient Smart Specialisation Strategies, and Hannah Schmidberger (JRC) who will present on ‘Partnerships for Regional Innovation’. Additionally, there will be a roundtable of experts discussing different aspects of integrating RRI within S3.
TetRRIS is a project which, using 4 pilot regions, is looking at how RRI and S3 can be applied and integrated into policies and practice at the regional level. This event will reference the actions being taken by the project, as well as provide a broader lens to the concepts, which may be of interest for regions or actors at the regional level interested in how to integrate RRI into their policymaking, or how to transition from S3 to Smart Specialisation Strategies for Sustainability (S4).
