Event details

 
RRI and regional development: common dilemmas, different approaches” is a series of three webinars dealing with the concepts of regional dilemmas and Responsible Research and Innovation. The series intend to bring together European territories from 4 different SwafS projects (TeRRItoria, SeeRRI, RRI2SCALE, DigiTeRRI), and each webinar is devoted to a different family of territories which share common regional dilemmas, as well as similar socio-economic and geographic characteristics.
 
EURADA, WeDo and White Research organise these webinars with the aim of sharing the participating territories’ insights on how the same dilemmas are experienced differently and how RRI elements are territorially implemented to overcome them.
 
Our first webinar was held successfully in June, and it was dedicated to maritime territories. You can find more info here to better understand the context.
 
Our second webinar is scheduled for 10th of November, 11:00-13:00 CET, and will be dedicated to industrial territories.
The participating territories will be
  • Emilia Romagna (TeRRItoria),
  • Overijssel (RRI2SCALE),
  • B30 (SeeRRI),
  • Lower Austria (SeeRRI),
  • Grand Est (DigiTeRRI).
 
Speakers representing their territories will discuss how the concept of “Twin Transition”, as the latter has been put forward by the European Commission in the European Skills Agenda, creates trade-offs to each European territory in a unique way, and how the regional application of RRI elements can help overcome these dilemmas and propel regional Green Growth and Digitalisation.
