A Transition Experiment is made up of a series of workshops to test FoTRRIS’ conceptual and methodological frameworks for co-RRI. In each of the 5 countries in which these experiments take place, a competence cell (comprising FoTRRIS’ partners) invites local actors from the quadruple helix to design collaboratively a research project using the FoTRRIS frameworks. Each transition experiment works on a different theme. When the frameworks are validated and when others will have the possibility to use them in their R&I activities, the name Experiment will be replaced by Arena.
FoTRRIS partner IFZ was the competence cell of the Austrian Transition Experiment. They haave been working on sustainable food for quite some time with their local community in Graz – this is why they chose this topic for their transition experiment.
