Competence Cell

The Competence Cell is a transdisciplinary sub-unit, established to create strong local networks of actors from the quintuple helix innovation system for reflection on glocal challenges, co-creation, promotion and test of RRI practices for local territory.

Reason why

All CESIE’s research activities have officially merged into our Higher Education and Research Competence Cell, established in 2018 under the Horizon 2020 project FoTRRIS, today continued and sustained by the ongoing Horizon 2020 project RAISD and other initiatives.

All CESIE’s Units cooperate to boost quality and impact of the Competence Cell, sharing knowledge and expertise, human and  resource capital, results and exploitation opportunities for as many internal and external stakeholders as possible: Policy makers, Research Community, Education Community, Business and Industry, Civil Society Organisations.
