On the 23rd of November 2022, we will celebrate our Final Conference in a joint effort with the European project RRI2SCALE. The event will be held in the Yugoslav Film Archive, in the city of Belgrade (Serbia), in the framework of the Open Science Conference 2022.

Registrations for the in-person event are now closed.

The two Horizon 2020 projects RRI2SCALE and TeRRIFICA are organising together their Joint Final Conference.

RRI2SCALE (Jan. 2020 – Dec. 2022) explored future Research & Innovation development trajectories at the regional level, with a focus on the three fields of “smart cities – transport – energy”. The project has designed and piloted a solid multi-stakeholder approach based on complex foresight analysis, in order to assist four pilot European regions to sufficiently and sustainably address their regional dilemmas in these smart fast-changing fields. These domains were selected because they are highly technology-oriented, as well as of immediate concern for citizens, but are also an integral element of regional competitiveness. Find out more about RRI2SCALE.

TeRRIFICA (Jan. 2019 – Dec. 2022) focused on how to influence climate change policies by fostering Responsible Research and Innovation in six European regions. The project explored future visions of a climatic landscape in 2030 and exploited the possibilities of action that were suggested through a crowd-mapping tool by various actors in the pilot cities and regions. These future visions integrate RRI into climate actions where science and society actively collaborate, and new forms of innovations are co-created in the open, transferable environment. Find out more about TeRRIFICA.

We are inviting everyone – interested civil society actors and representatives from NGOs, politics, administration, planning, science, to be part of it!

The venue of the Conference will be the Yugoslav Film Archive. The Conference will be part of the wider Open Science Communication Conference 2022, which will be held on 24-25 November in Belgrade. There will be stakeholders from all over Europe in the city that week, and therefore an excellent opportunity for networking.

The event will include presentations from the two projects, interactive sessions, open roundtables, as well as inspiring talks about RRI and regional development by honourary speakers.

The attendance at the conference is free of charge, but with a limited capacity. Travel and accommodation costs can’t be reimbursed.
