FoTRRIS was a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 program ‘Science with and for Society’ (grant agreement no 665906). Its main objective was to develop and introduce new governance practices to co-create transdisciplinary Responsible Research and Innovation (co-RRI) project concepts that are attuned to local needs, values and opportunities, and that mobilize and connect local stakeholders.

On this website you can find more information on co-RRI, the toolkit developed for co-RRI practitioners, the online platform, the co-RRI competence cells established during the project and all the other project results.

What is co-created Responsible Research & Innovation (co-RRI)?

Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) was introduced as a new way to conceptualize the relationship between science and society. It addresses the growing need for a science and innovation system performing more ‘responsible’, and therefore includes principles such as gender equality, transparency and open access to data. Because current conceptualizations leave too much room for interpretation, FoTRRIS introduced co-created responsible research and innovation (co-RRI). This concept does not substitute former definitions and principles, but attempts to supplement them by questioning:

The FoTRRIS consortium published a position paper on co-RRI in which the concept is explained in more detail. You can find it here

Conceptual framework

FoTRRIS’ understanding of RRI has some specificities compared to RRI’s mainstream definitions. That is why we developed a conceptual framework to explain the essentials of co-RRI.

CO-RRI Tools

Specific tools were designed to foster collaboration between researchers, businesses, citizens and policy-makers such as an open web-based platform to coordinate co-RRI activities in Europe.

Competence cells

Competence cells supporting the transition towards RRI systems were established in 5 countries, with the aim to co-solve challenges related to the practice of responsible research and innovation.

Policy Recommendations

Concrete policy recommendations and guidelines for RRI were developed based on the transition experiments and the inputs gathered throughout the project.
