In order to accomplish this goal, NewHoRRIzon will establish altogether 18 Social Labs that cover all sections of H2020, reaching from excellence science and industrial leadership to societal challenges. Together with a wide-ranging group of stakeholders in the field of research and innovation, in these Social Labs, NewHoRRIzon will co-create tailor-made pilot actions that will stimulate an increased use and acceptance of RRI across H2020 and each of its parts. These pilot actions will address a variety of research and innovation actors such as academia, business, non-university research institutes, research funding organisations, policy-makers on European, Member State and global level, civil society organi-sations (CSOs) and the general and specific public(s) as they arise from technological controversies. Ultimately, the pilot actions to be developed and tested in the Social Labs will contribute to research and innovation projects that fully recognise the significance of RRI.
NewHoRRIzon will stimulate learning about how to accomplish RRI in H2020 and beyond in its Social Labs, in two cross-sectional workshops and two transdisciplinary conferences. It will conceptualise and operationalise a Society Readiness Level (SRL) for research and innovation that focuses on the align-ment between the processes and products of research and innovation on the one hand, and broader societal demands and expectations on the other. Finally, NewHoRRIzon will use a variety of target-group specific strategies to disseminate best practices to promote uptake of RRI across H2020 and gen-erate long-term impact. For that it will use existing spaces and networks as well as create new ones.
