    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Regional planning is a complex endeavour that&amp;nbsp;requires a collective approach. For two and a&amp;nbsp;half years, the SeeRRI project has been working&amp;nbsp;with pilot territories in Norway, Austria, and Spain&amp;nbsp;to develop and refine a method for integrating&amp;nbsp;RRI principles into regional planning and smart&amp;nbsp;specialisation policy.&amp;nbsp;This booklet presents the&amp;nbsp;method, explains its background, and discusses its&amp;nbsp;implications. The booklet also offers intriguing third party&amp;nbsp;perspectives from a range of distinguished&amp;nbsp;guest authors.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;To set the stage, &lt;strong&gt;Section I&lt;/strong&gt; lays out the &lt;strong&gt;motivation&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;nbsp;for the SeeRRI project and the booklet itself.&amp;nbsp;SeeRRI Coordinator Nhien Nguyen and five guest contributors &amp;ndash; Ren&amp;eacute; von Schomberg, Linden Farrer,&amp;nbsp;Marta Truco Calbet, Jackson Nickerson, and Johan&amp;nbsp;Stierna &amp;ndash; each provide their brief take on why a&amp;nbsp;booklet such as this is needed. Representatives&amp;nbsp;from SeeRRI&amp;rsquo;s three pilot territories explain why&amp;nbsp;they joined the SeeRRI project.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Section II &lt;/strong&gt;provides an introduction to the SeeRRI&amp;nbsp;project and presents its key outcome, &lt;strong&gt;the SeeRRI&amp;nbsp;method of responsible regional planning&lt;/strong&gt;. The&amp;nbsp;method is a concrete yet flexible step-by-step&amp;nbsp;process that can be applied in a variety of regional&amp;nbsp;contexts. In a nutshell, the process comprises&amp;nbsp;three stages, each of which is to be carried out&amp;nbsp;by regional planners in close cooperation with local stakeholders. First, a core challenge for the&amp;nbsp;region is defined. Second, foresight methodology&amp;nbsp;is used to map out possible future scenarios for&amp;nbsp;the region, and a regional strategy is created on&amp;nbsp;the basis of insights from the scenarios. Third,&amp;nbsp;the regional government implements the strategy&amp;nbsp;in cooperation with relevant stakeholders. The&amp;nbsp;process is repeated as necessary in response to changing regional conditions.&amp;nbsp;In the last part of Section II, representatives from&amp;nbsp;SeeRRI&amp;rsquo;s affiliated territories in Finland, Serbia, Montenegro, and Israel explain how they have been&amp;nbsp;inspired by the SeeRRI method.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;SeeRRI is not the only project to tackle the&amp;nbsp;challenge of promoting and implementing RRI in&amp;nbsp;European territories. In &lt;strong&gt;Section III&lt;/strong&gt;, a number of&amp;nbsp;other ongoing EU projects &amp;ndash; TeRRIFICA, TeRRItoria,&amp;nbsp;TRANSFORM, CHERRIES, RRI2SCALE, TetRRIs,&amp;nbsp;MARIE, and DigiTeRRI &amp;ndash; &lt;strong&gt;share their experiences&amp;nbsp;of working with RRI at the regional level&lt;/strong&gt;. Like&amp;nbsp;SeeRRI, most of these projects belong to the &amp;ldquo;Science with and for Society&amp;rdquo; (SwafS) program&amp;nbsp;within Horizon 2020. While each project takes&amp;nbsp;a distinct approach and works with a unique set&amp;nbsp;of pilot territories, the projects are united by a&amp;nbsp;common vision of strengthening the democratic&amp;nbsp;governance of R&amp;amp;I in&amp;nbsp;Europe.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Finally, &lt;strong&gt;Section IV&lt;/strong&gt; provides &lt;strong&gt;perspectives on the&amp;nbsp;road ahead&lt;/strong&gt;. Seven experts from every branch of&amp;nbsp;the quadruple helix offer their opinion on how the&amp;nbsp;legacy of SeeRRI and its sister projects can be&amp;nbsp;leveraged to create responsible and sustainable&amp;nbsp;R&amp;amp;I ecosystems for the future and which dangers&amp;nbsp;and risks we need to look out for. Topics raised&amp;nbsp;in this section include the potential impact of&amp;nbsp;the Horizon Europe research programme (Linden&amp;nbsp;Farrer); the importance of innovation policy&amp;nbsp;institutions and value-driven R&amp;amp;I (Ren&amp;eacute; von&amp;nbsp;Schomberg); the usefulness of the SeeRRI method&amp;nbsp;in tackling wicked problems (Jackson Nickerson);&amp;nbsp;the need for broadening the scope of stakeholder&amp;nbsp;inclusion (Elisabetta Marinelli) and for recognizing&amp;nbsp;the potential dangers of R&amp;amp;I (Rune Dahl Fitjar); the urgent need to unlearn outdated assumptions&amp;nbsp;about RRI (Anne Snick); and the inspirational power&amp;nbsp;of SeeRRI (Klaus Hitzenberger).&lt;/p&gt;</description>
