TetRRIS takes 4 regions/territories, their policymakers and stakeholders, on a journey through pilot experiments in Responsible Research and Innovation and Smart Specialisation. For tetRRIS, four pilot regions Tampere (FI); Karlsruhe (DE), Cantabria (ES), Szeged-Timisoara (RO/HU) have been selected and are central to the scientific research and associated policy recommendations seeking to address societal challenges at the local level.
In a nutshell, as theoretically the pilot regions are the space where R&I activities produce actual innovation, the project will support its pilot regions to make RRI integration possible within R&I territorial governance (Smart Specialisation). Overall, this approach aiming to ready regions for RRI integration in their TRISs, will be replicable and replicated to actors wider than the project regions through awareness raising and policy recommendations.”
