Institutional membership in Diwan Network can bring a number of benefits related to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and Lifelong Learning (LLL) through the Quadruple Helix (QH) approach.
First, the Quadruple Helix approach of Diwan Network prioritizes collaboration and co-creation among stakeholders, including research institutions, businesses, governments, and civil society organizations. This can help institutions to identify and address societal challenges in a more effective and sustainable way, by involving all relevant stakeholders in the research and innovation process.
Second, the Micro Production Model (MPM) that the network supports, encourages local production and consumption, which can help institutions to develop research and innovation activities that are more closely aligned with the needs and aspirations of local communities. This can also help institutions to promote lifelong learning and to develop more relevant and accessible micro-credentials that can support the development of local skills and capacities.
Third, The focus on transparency, accountability and community participation in the governance models of the network can help institutions to ensure that their research and innovation activities are aligned with the values and interests of their stakeholders and the community at large.
By joining the Diwan Network, institutions can gain access to a range of resources and support that can help them to improve their RRI and LLL performance, to develop more sustainable and relevant research and innovation activities, and to comply with RRI and LLL regulations. This includes access to expertise and knowledge from other members, as well as access to networks and partnerships that can support the development of more sustainable and responsible research and innovation activities.
Institutions that join Diwan Network can benefit from the platform’s digital infrastructure in several ways that can help them reach the right audience at the right time.

This can increase equity, accessibility and affordability of education services and support the development of micro-credentials and other forms of lifelong learning opportunities.
