Fostering a Transition towards Responsible Research and Innovation Systems.
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:
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.
Errin was responsible for the European policy recommendations that highlighted the necessity of introducing the following policy measures:
