TRANSFORM participatory lab at the European Week of Regions and Cities

Citizen engagement can strengthen trust between institutions and citizens. In the TRANSFORM project (funded under Horizon 2020) citizen science, co-design and co-creation have been applied to regional R&I decision-making in Lombardy, Catalonia, and Brussels-Capital. Through sharing of experiences and promising outcomes of citizen engagement in regional R&I policies, this participatory lab will provide examples and suggestions on how to create more open, transparent and inclusive regional R&I governance processes.

Join us in an interactive session and learn more about the benefits of citizen engagement, get your questions answered by experts, share your experiences and suggestions for further applications in regional decision making. 

Registration opens on 30 August! Stay tuned for more information.

TRANSFORM took part in the online workshop L’innovazione alla prova dei territori: co-creazione, agende collaborative e ricerca responsabile’ organised by ART-ER within the framework of the TeRRItoria project  funded by Horizon 2020.

The objective of the webinar was to present some elements that have emerged from the experimentation phase. Together with other actors at national level that deal with responsible research and innovation (RRI) and co-creation practices, the most useful elements for the development of collaborative research and innovation projects with territorial effects were defined.  The themes of co-creation, collaborative research agendas, design for responsible innovation and RRI in general were discussed. The webinar showcased concrete cases of citizen participation and presented the first draft of regional guidelines for RRI, developed in a participatory process.

TRANSFORM’s Project Coordinator and leader of the Lombardy regional cluster Angela Simone from Fondazionne Giannino Bassetti (FGB) presented co-creation and participative methodologies applied within the project. Moreover, Tatiana Fernandez representing the Generalitat de Catalunya (GENCAT), a regional Government of Catalonia which is part of TRANSFORM’s Catalan regional cluster, talked about RRI in regional programming from a perspective of Catalonia, one of the pioneers in the implementation of RRI in the regional R&I.
