RRI and regional development: common dilemmas, different approaches.
2nd webinar: the Twin Transition inside the industrial territories
On Wednesday 10th of November, 4 H2020 SwafS (Science with and for Citizens) projects are organising the second webinar of “RRI and regional development: common dilemmas, different approaches”. The participating projects are TeRRItoria, SeeRRI, RRI2SCALE and DigiTeRRI, and in this unique series of webinars they will showcase how regions and territories across Europe share common regional challenges in Research and Innovation, and despite their commonalities, deal with them under a different approach.
In particular, “RRI and regional development: common dilemmas, different approaches” is dealing with the concepts of regional dilemmas and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). The series is bringing together European territories from the four projects, while each webinar is being devoted to a different family of territories which share common regional dilemmas, as well as similar socio-economic and geographic characteristics. The aim of the series is to connect policy-makers and experts from the territories to share their insights on how the same dilemmas and local challenges are experienced differently, as well on how RRI elements are territorially implemented to overcome them.
The second webinar will take place on Wednesday the 10th of November, at 11:00 CET and will be dedicated to industrial territories. The participating territories will be
- Emilia Romagna (TeRRItoria), Kristian Mancinone – ART-ER S. cons. p. a.
- Overijssel (RRI2SCALE), Joost Kuijper – Province of Overijssel and Anne Dijkstra – University of Twente
- B30 (SeeRRI), Xavier Ariño Vila – Autonomous University of Barcelona
- Lower Austria (SeeRRI), Simone Hagenauer – Ecoplus | The BusinessAgency of Lower Austria
- Grand Est (DigiTeRRI), Jean Jacques Bernardini – European affairsdepartment, Grand E-nov+
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.
