Joining Efforts for RRI – JERRI – made a substantial contribution to deeply institutionalizing practices and attitudes of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in the European Research Area. For this purpose JERRI orchestrated a deep RRI transition process within the two largest European Research and Technology Organizations (RTOs), the German Fraunhofer Gesellschaft and the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research. The process was conceptualized as an intense mutual learning process
between the two organizations, a wider circle of RTOs, and stakeholders
across Europe. Thus, JERRI exploited the unique mediating function of
RTOs to catalyze RRI transition processes in industry, society and
policy across the European research and innovation landscape.
The project ran from June 2016 until May 2019 under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 / Science with and for Society programme.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 709747.
