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 CESIE was the competence cell of the Italian Transition Experiment. They chose to work on renewable energies during their transition experiment, as local energy production is of importance for Sicily.
