SoA of RRI Action Plans and Quadruple Helix dialogue
on June 9, 2020
One of the tasks of the GRRIP project is to learn from and extend the findings, tools, and results from previous H2020 and other EU projects, as well as to adapt or update what is available to meet the needs of the GRRIP project. Therefore, to ensure maximum use of the State-of-Art (SoA) in preparation for the phases of the Action Plan (AP) and in establishing the Quadruple Helix (QH) platform, GRRIP is conducting desk research of the literature from the selected projects. This will include the project deliverables covering Audit, AP, QH engagement and other relevant areas. This work began by drawing upon existing work to the extent feasible, including that of the Compass project Deliverable 1.4 to be used extensively as a starting point for review of RRI-related projects. After this, the most relevant projects were selected to follow up to seek further information to gain a better understanding of key issues and lessons learned from the perspective of stakeholders involved in these projects. These issues and lessons learned were gathered using a brief questionnaire. This work will be provided in April in three deliverables so keep a lookout on the project website and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter to kept up to date on these developments.
Quadruple Helix Engagement
The GRRIP project has spent considerable effort identifying the different types of stakeholders with a potential interest in GRRIP for each of the RPO&PFO case studies, contacting them with information about the project’s objectives, the benefits of participation and the types of activities they can get involved with. The aim was to have a balanced participation from industry, academia, civil society and policy related stakeholders for each case study organization. The list of QH participants will be finalised and the QH platform ready by the end of March.
In the future, the QH will be involved in case studies of real R&I activity from agenda-setting, to co-production of research and innovation content, or peer review in funding agencies, for example.
