Feb 11, 2022

Our team is seeking good practices in Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) from and for the Western Balkans.

We want to engage a growing and diverse number of stakeholders in research and innovation to highlight the existing initiatives working on these issues and thus inspire more peers to follow suit. The aim is to facilitate networking and peer learning, as well as the sharing of good practices to ultimately improve the regional research and innovation ecosystem.


There are already vast experiences in the region and we want to promote the success cases, inspire partners to join efforts, increase the impact of the actions by sharing them and support stakeholders to explore together the transferability of good practices.
With this call for submission of good practices, WBC-RRI.NET aims to surface and show-case good practices within the region, gain insight into running initiatives, reflect on practical experience. We also strive to strengthen these practices and their coordination, build relationships and collaboration opportunities based on a culture of mutual exchange and learning.

What is a good practice?

Your good practice are processes, initiatives or working methods that have proved successful to introduce or implement a RRI related practice or to optimise the performance of RRI related activities. A good practice is practically a successful response to address RRI challenges, ranging from policy development, promotion of RRI, capacity building, through products, processes or services and intra-organisational tools.

Why participate?

Get a chance to promote your activities and share them with your peers and the wider R&I performing, funding and administrating community. Be an example for others to replicate and show your innovative activities in an international setting. Let’s improve together the research and innovation ecosystem in the region.

Who can apply?

Any stakeholder implementing Responsible Research and Innovation activities in and for the Western Balkans.

How to participate?

This is a continuous call and the application process is now open. Please apply with your good practice and share it with the world! Fill in the good practice application form here.

What will happen further?

We plan to organise peer-learning webinars highlighting good practices and promote them regionally and internationally. We plan to publish and disseminate a compendium of good practices and by January 2024, we will award three good (best!) practices with a prize.

Use this chance to promote your activities, expand your network and contribute to Responsible Research and Innovation in the Western Balkans!
