FoTRRIS was a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 program ‘Science with and for Society’.
The main objective was to develop and introduce new governance practices to co-create transdisciplinary Responsible Research and Innovation (co-RRI) project concepts that are attuned to local needs, values and opportunities, and that mobilize and connect local stakeholders.
RESPONSIBLE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION (RRI)
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) was introduced as a new way to conceptualize the relationship between science and society.
It addresses the growing need for a science and innovation system performing more "responsible" and therefore includes principles such as gender equality, transparency and open access to data.
5 TRANSITION EXPERIMENTS
FoTRRIS performed “Transition Experiments” made up of a series of workshops to test FoTRRIS’ conceptual and methodological frameworks for co-RRI.
The activities took place in:
- Graz, Austria on sustainable food
- Flanders, Belgium on materials scarcity
- Hungary on local economic development
- Sicily, Italy on renewable energies
- Madrid, Spain on refugees and women with disabilities.
In each of the five countries, a competence cell (comprising FoTRRIS’ partners) invited local actors from the quadruple helix to design collaboratively a research project, using the FoTRRIS frameworks.
