  • To develop and introduce new governance practices to foster Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI)
  • To set up new governance practices to co-design transdiciplinary RRI-projects that are attuned to local needs, values and opportunities and that connect and mobilise local stakeholders
  • To build on capacity with respect to collaborative agenda-setting on the level of research performing organisations


  • Synthesis reporting of research and innovation systems (practice, barriers) and potential levers within 5 partner countries

  • Concepts for co-RRI-projects: which describes the local/regional problem definition of the global challenge, the systemic analysis of causes of and reasons for the challenges, the projected potential solution, the co-RRI project concept
  • Established co-RRI knowledge arenas and developed business model for their functioning
  • Reports on Policy recommendations for co-RRI in the EU
  • Materials for fostering uptake of co-RRI and future of RRI in EU
