[ONGOING] The overall goal of REAL RIS project is to increase the urban-mobility-related innovation potential in the RIS countries, by educating, connecting & actively engaging all sides of the Knowledge Triangle, including the cities.

Empowering RIS Stakeholders

There is an innovation-related knowledge gap in RIS countries hindering a smooth energy and digital transition, which are crucial for the development of sustainable urban mobility systems and liveable urban spaces.

To overcome this, RIS countries must improve the capacities, capabilities, and collaboration levels of the local stakeholders

REAL RIS will address these challenges with a comprehensive educational programme that includes three key packages:

  • REAL RIS ACADEMY – targeting university staff and students,
  • REAL RIS CITY – targeting cities and municipalities,
  • REAL RIS SUMMER SCHOOL – integrating all key stakeholders in identifying challenges, exchanging knowledge, and co-creating solutions while generating long-lasting partnerships.

REAL RIS offers a systemic approach and builds upon the existing concepts that will be further tailored to meet specific needs of targeted ecosystems, with a focus on replication and upscale potential.

The REAL (Responsible, Educated, Agile, Leading) RIS project provides a systematic approach, enhancing existing concepts to meet the specific needs of target ecosystems.

ODRAZ’s activities in the project include:

  • Supporting REGEA in developing training programs aimed at fostering entrepreneurial and innovative competencies among RIS students.
  • Implementation of the REAL RIS Academy for university staff and students (in collaboration with REGEA and Vefresh).
  • Implementation of the REAL RIS Summer School (in collaboration with REGEA).
