Join the SeeRRI Final Conference | Bringing RRI into Regional Planning
Posted by The SeeRRI team on 10 Jun 2021
The SeeRRI project has worked tirelessly for three years to find a framework that allows territories to put Responsible Research and Innovation principles at the core of their smart specialisation stratregy. Financed by Horizon2020, the project has piloted its process in three different territories: B30 (Spain), Lower Austria, and Nordland (Norway), and has counted on the participation of twelve partner organisations from five different countries.
As it is now coming to an end, the SeeRRI project will culminate in the Final Conference “Bringing RRI into Regional Planning: From Theory to SeeRRI”, which will take place in the beautiful modernist building “Casa Convalescència” in Barcelona on the 29th and 30th of September. The Conference will bring together policymakers, regional stakeholders, researchers, members of SeeRRI and related projects, EU officials, citizens interested in the future of Europe, and inspiring guest speakers for two days of knowledge-sharing and lively debates about the future of responsible regional planning and responsible research and innovation (RRI) in Europe and beyond.
At the conference, participants will learn about the outcomes and lessons from the SeeRRI project, including the tools developed by SeeRRI for responsible regional planning. The tools enable regional policymakers and planners to lend legitimacy to their policies by making sure that stakeholders from all strata of society have a voice in policymaking, right from the earliest stage of policy development. The tools are designed with the flexibility to be applied in a broad range of regional settings.
Joining the Conference will give you the opportunity to:
- Hear interesting perspectives on sustainability, regional innovation strategies, RRI, and related topics from a range of distinguished guest speakers from the public and private sectors.
- Interact with representatives from other European territories – besides the SeeRRI pilot territories mentioned above – who will have exhibition stands at the conference and share their views on challenges and strategies related to RRI and regional development.
- Engage in debates that challenge conventional wisdom on how to be responsible in regional planning.
- Have a chance to network with professionals from across Europe who have an interest in responsible regional planning and responsible research and innovation.
