RRIstart - Responsible Research & Innovation Model for Impact Investment & Responsible Startups
By adopting a multi-disciplinary approach in a multi-sectoral STEM context, RRIstart will update the SwafS knowledge base through the following: Contributing to 9 MoRRI indicators and 9 SDGs; boosting societal engagement towards STEM startups; fostering the recruitment of talent for STEM startups; Pairing scientific excellence with social awareness and responsibility by facilitating RRI-based startups and impact investment; creating new market opportunities; Bringing society closer to science and innovation through impact investment; and overall, making EU startups and investors more RRI-aware.
Three pilots will be organized, where extended quadruple helix actors will be involved in order to assess the feasibility of embedding RRI in startups and to facilitate (public and private) impact investment through the RRI-based indicator set.
