The Final Conference of the two sister projects RRI2Scale and TeRRIFICA, was followed by the joint Final Policy event between the two projects. The event was held on the 2nd of December 2022, at the Research Executive Agency’s venue in Brussels. During the event, RRI2SCALE and TeRRIFICA discussed their own policy reflections on responsible governance and RRI regarding three smart domains and climate action, with the aim to increase their impact on the policy level.

In total, 17 experts and EU-wide stakeholders participated in the policy event – this number does not include consortium partners. High-level policy experts including Georgios Papanagnou joined the innovation policy discussion, as did René von Schomberg attended. Furthermore, members of the Advisory Board of RRI2SCALE also joined the discussion as EU-wide experts. The projects engaged with policy stakeholders at the EU level to share experiences, findings and lessons learnt, and to reflect on which high-level governance actions are promising to strengthen Responsible Research and Innovation.

Last but not least, the Final Policy event was organised in a hybrid way to allow flexibility. Most attendees joined in person, with only 5 persons joining online. White Research, being responsible for the Dissemination, Communication & Exploitation of the project, was represented by Thomas Bakratsas and Despina Natsi.

A special thanks to our dear colleagues for their great work and for the successful completion of the RRI2SCALE project !
