Introduction to the Project

RIPEET will support territories in establishing experimental spaces to address the territorial dimensions of the European Green Deal, in line with Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). Leveraging the involvement of ERRIN's Energy & Climate Change Working Group leaders, the RIPEET project will support Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) policy experimentations for energy transition in three European territories - in Extremadura (ES), Highlands and Islands of Scotland (UK) and Ostrobothnia (FI). These territories will be at the heart of the project's activities, offering real-life settings to test, pilot, and validate RIPEET's methodology via the Transition Labs. RRI-based Transition Labs will create collective stewardship of the territorial energy future via participatory instruments and serve as a framework for envisioning sustainable energy futures. They are points of departure for collective approaches aiming to create more open, inclusive and self-sustaining R&I eco-systems. The framework conditions, processes and outcomes of these experiments will be mapped, monitored, and evaluated. This constitutes an evidence-base for the revision of sectoral policies, strategies and research and innovation (R&I) instruments as well as for establishing a European RIPEET community.

Project Objectives

  • Overall objective 1: RIPEET conducts transformative R&I policy experiments aiming to identify niches and to co-create sustainable energy transition pathways with territorial quintuple helix stakeholders which results in more open, transparent and democratic territorial R&I systems.
  • Overall objective 2: RIPEET establishes novel, self-sustaining, and transparent governance relations within territorial energy R&I eco-systems that are based on open and democratic process of niche and transition management and creates positive societal, democratic, environmental, economic and scientific impacts.
  • Overall objective 3: RIPEET creates transformative R&I working methods within and between actors, that promote greater sustainability and inclusiveness, initiating transformation processes of the organisations involved at the level of the territories and beyond.

ERRIN's Role

ERRIN is responsible for establishing a Community of Practice of six additional "mirror ecosystems". Based on the learning in the three RIPEET territories, a peer-learning scheme will enable mutual learning, mentoring and inspiration, disseminating the results and lessons learned from the experiments to other territorial ecosystems: the replicability and effectiveness of RIPEET’s approach and related methodology will be the backbone of its exploitation potential. Moreover, ERRIN is in charge of the overall communication, dissemination and exploitation activities of the RIPEET project.

Benefit & Links

ERRIN members will have the opportunity to apply for the Community of Practice (M10) and benefit from the peer learning scheme: they will be able to take up and replicate the RRI-based energy transition approach validated through RIPEET. The objective is to build a community of practice bottom-up, using the driving force of a mentoring and twinning scheme, which identifies a shared domain of interest, creates a common repertoire of resources and experiences and weaves the social fabric which enables collective knowledge sharing.

ERRIN’s new project: RIPEET  

ERRIN has become a partner in a Horizon 2020 funded project RIPEET. Mobilising ERRIN’s Energy & Climate Change Working Group leaders, the RIPEET project will support Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) policy experimentations for energy transition in three European territories: Extremadura (ES), Highlands and Islands of Scotland (UK) and Ostrobothnia (FI).
