Embedding RRI in Western Balkan Countries: Enhancement of Self-Sustaining R&I Ecosystems
Co-PLAN is part of yet another Horizon 2020 project, titled “Embedding RRI in Western Balkan Countries: Enhancement of Self-Sustaining R&I Ecosystems”.
The overall aim of WBC-RRI.NET is to foster the application of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) principles at the territorial level in Western Balkan Countries (WBCs), so as to then promote a multi-level steering R&I governance framework. The RRI principles will act as enablers to the shared learning and diffusion of R&I governance innovations at the territorial level and this in turn can lead to enhancing R&I planning, including the existent or upcoming Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3) in the WBCs. This framework will be based on a ‘smart directionality’ approach – been indicated as beneficial to regional ecosystems – as well as on a regional and local innovation planning, a concept to which citizens will also be brought closer through the RRI principles. R&I planning and S3 strategies will thus have the potential to be characterised by an RRI-driven open and inclusive approach, entailing a comprehensive stakeholder involvement and engagement with a focus on citizens’ participation.
