Research & Innovation

Quadruple Helix (QH) Program

Quadruple helix collaborations create innovation through interactive processes in which different groups of actors contribute with their knowledge due to their function in society. Such collaborations formalize the role of civil society and this creates a more transparent innovation process based on the principles of responsible research and innovation. In addition, they could be more adapted to the needs of the twenty-first century, as knowledge is increasingly created in cross-sectoral collaborations and is not limited to one field of knowledge.

More perspectives are therefore needed to understand the present unfolding innovation process through a different lens. Innovation processes thereby become more open through the belief that different stakeholders in society jointly and actively are part of creating new ways of innovating.

Shaping science with and for society, dealing with the risk challenges of our planet.

Transformative change requires resilient networks and democratic stewardship that unite a variety of actors and encourage a plurality of methods, perspectives, and skills, allowing for an agile, engaged, and inclusive environment

Fiercely Independent

World's Risk Community

GCRI is a registered non-profit organization based in Canada with partners around the globe to bring bold innovative ideas to life.

As a network of independent players, we focus on locally-led, innovative, and adaptive learning, which commits us to build cross-country solidarity, comparative research, and advocacy around open collaboration and sustainable innovation.

Mission
The GCRI is building a new architecture for governance and technology that is more social, integrative, and driven by civil society. It is a place for anyone looking to better integrate private and public action, people, nature, and future generations, to build a global society that attracts us to work together rather than be divided.
Vision
We envision a world of harmony, equity, and justice for all on a sustainable planet, nurtured by open collaboration, responsive institutions, and empowered citizens. The end goal is to create a pluralistic network of independent, scalable, and interoperable tribes for impactful action.
Scope
The GCRI platform is focused on improving global governance by building a broader community with targeted initiatives and best practices. The GCRI was established on the premise that non-state actors need better digital public infrastructure to coordinate. To accomplish its objectives, the GCRI platform is designed to provide a neutral and inclusive space for technology and policy debates as a platform where members can exchange different ideas while leveraging an equal chance to participate in various novel activities, collective actions, local projects, and global initiatives. The GCRI platform facilitates sustained dialogue and project work among civil society, private entities, foundations, and academia.
