Workshop with GRACE, GRRIP and Fit4RRI at the Triple Helix Summit
The Triple Helix Summit gathers global leaders from academia, industry and policy to discuss how to build and grow regional innovative ecosystems to tackle world grand challenges. Initially planned in Bologna, it will be held online.
Institutional change in European Research Funding and Performing Organisations – the power of RRI
26. November, GRACE held a workshop alongside with GRRIP and Fit4RRI, on “Institutional change in European Research Funding and Performing Organisations – the power of RRI’”.
- Learn about methodologies and practical approaches which can lead to RRI-oriented institutional change
- Be inspired from proven case studies of RRI in RFPOs
- Exchange experiences with key actors of the wider triple helix spectrum
The workshop gave practical insights on how to foster RRI-oriented institutional change in Research Funding and Performing Organisations (RFPO) from a number of different perspectives: mobilising and engaging societal actors involved in science and innovation, promoting open science, developing co-creation processes, nurturing public engagement, and ensuring gender equality.
More specifically, the workshop presented the RRI frameworks developed in three projects – namely Fit4RRI, GRACE and GRRIP – funded under the H2020 Science with and for Society Call entitled “Grounding RRI practices in research and innovation funding and performing organisations”. The presentations was followeded by practical examples of how the frameworks are currently being implemented in RFPOs.
The participants were then invited to engage in a discussions on how to achieve change in RFPOs through RRI-related initiatives and how to pave the way for further and more complex institutional change.
