Joining Efforts for RRI – JERRI – makes a substantial contribution to deeply institutionalizing practices and attitudes of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in the European Research Area. For this purpose JERRI is orchestrating 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 is conceptualized as an intense mutual learning process between the two organizations, a wider circle of RTOs, and stakeholders across Europe. Thus, JERRI will exploit 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 runs from June 2016 until May 2019 under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 / Science with and for Society programme, as a response to the call “Supporting structural change in research organisations to promote Responsible Research and Innovation (ISSI-5-2015)”.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 709747.
