The Project

RRI-LEADERS will explore the application and sustainability of the RRI paradigm within territorial innovation systems, with a special emphasis on instrumentalising leadership in the design of policies that are anticipatory, inclusive, reflexive and responsive.  “Territory” is understood as a confluence between geographical location, socio-economic and cultural bonds, and administrative authority.

The project will involve four different territories representing a diverse range of opportunities and implications for RRI, which will enable  to carry out a thorough assessment of the RRI relevance to territorial governance and the involved territories to act as demonstrators for the potential of RRI on sub-national level. The accumulated knowledge will be used to chart a detailed outlook for the future potential of RRI as a guiding framework in territorial governance of R&I, and will aim to provide an evolutionary perspective on RRI for the upcoming Horizon Europe programme.
