D-STIR – Danube Framework for Responsible Research and Innovation using Socio-Technical Integration
Project duration: 1st Jan 2017 – 30st June 2019
Programme: Interreg Danube Transnational Programme
Lead Partner: SOUTH-EAST REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT AGENCY (Romania)
Partner countries: Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Germany, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina
D-STIR’s objective is to improve Danube framework conditions for innovation, by integrating Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in the whole innovation pipeline.
D-STIR is important for Danube innovation framework conditions. Innovation does account for socio-economic impact. Disproportionate economic development is reflected in R&I capital, expenditure and infrastructure. There is risk of political influence on R&I. Quadruple helix links are not common place.
RRI can answer these challenges. It ensures that R&I is carried out in a socially, environmentally and ethically manner. RRI engages all innovation chain stakeholders in quadruple helix cooperation. RRI is result focused: encouraging innovation that brings responsible products to the markets swiftly and managing risks.
