CWTS has been successful in another H2020 SwafS-14 call on territorial RRI. We are participating in a Coordination and support (CSA) project, RIPEET, which will start in February 2021 and last for 3 years. The team that will be involved in this project is: Ingeborg Meijer, Sonia Mena Jara, Tim Willemse and Gaston, Heimeriks. ZSI (AT) is the coordinator and the approach is roughly similar to CHERRIES, involving different regions and a different sector. Energy transition in this case.
The acronym of the project is RIPEET, which stands for Responsible research and Innovation Policy Experimentations for Energy Transition. The experimentations for energy transition will take place in three European territories - in Extremadura (ES), Highlands and Islands of Scotland (UK) and Ostrobothnia (FI).
RIPEET builds on the hypothesis that applying RRI methods to territorial transition management contributes to more innovative territorial environments as well as to more suitable innovations which have a higher possibility to contribute to energy transition. By taking a place-based approach rooted in broad stakeholders’ engagement, RIPEET provides evidence for advancing the territorial support system, providing coordination, directionality, demand-orientation as well as reflexivity.
CWTS will be involved in mapping of territorial policies, the co-creation of new policy mixes based on the regional transition labs, and in the monitoring and evaluation of territorial RRI, which feeds into the SUPER MoRRI project (hyperlink).
