REvaluation 2021 – Anticipation – Transition – Resilience

In the last couple of years, European science and innovation systems have been challenged by at least two major developments. First, R&I funding is increasingly designed with a view to supporting societal missions or system transformations. Second, COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of resilience of science and innovation systems and has questioned hitherto long held views of openness and division of labour in the development of knowledge and innovation.  

This year’s edition of European’s largest R&I policy evaluation conference will respond to those challenges. While primarily asking for conceptual and methodological advances in the field of R&I policy evaluation in its broadest sense, a strong focus this year will be to share and discuss conceptual approaches and experiences to assess and measure the relevance and effectiveness of new R&I policy responses which aim to contribute to transformation and resilience. This is especially important – and challenging – as such R&I policies are mostly still at experimental stage.

There is thus great uncertainty about which R&I interventions will work how and which rebound effects they may trigger. A clear instrumental toolbox is currently not in sight. These developments also challenge the field of evaluation: new policy questions require new evaluative approaches, new methods and new indicators, for which data are often very difficult to collect.

Evaluative conversations: translating between diverse stakeholders in regional RRI projects 

The University of Bergen, the lead partner of the work package on Monitoring and Evaluation within TRANSFORM, has contributed to the abstract prepared jointly by SwafS-14 projects on territorial RRI – issues, tensions and lessons learned in monitoring and evaluation practices of nine H2020 projects. Presented by Tjitske Holtrop and Anestis Amanatidis of CWTS Leiden, the talk “Evaluative conversations: translating between diverse stakeholders in regional RRI projects”  will take place on 5 May from 10:30 to 12:00 within the session on Regional Innovation.  

The REvaluation 2021 Conference is jointly organised by Fraunhofer ISI, IFRIS and the Austrian Platform for Research and Technology Policy Evaluation.

TeRRItoria final conference: RRI institutional changes for improved regional governance 

European territories have certain tested experiences of advanced governance models to share. Responsible research and innovation (RRI) principles increased the citizen engagement on policies and is helping to design advanced economic development strategies. With the co-creation of policies with citizens, the governance of regions is becoming more complex and at the same time more effective and inclusive. 

The Final TeRRItoria Webinar series aims to on the one hand put forward the experiences gained within the 3 years of TeRRItoria journey, at the same time provide some theoretical means as well as practical experiences that are useful to design institutional changes in territories to implement effective RRI principles into R&I ecosystems and governance structures at regional and local level.

There is a consensus among regional practitioners that future competitiveness will come from the double transitionsustainable and digital. This international conference brings together several experiences that have been approved by projects funded by the Horizon 2020 programme’s Science with and for Society (SwafS) calls. The international conference provides a framework for reflection on these developments and the way forward to provide an advanced legacy.

The TeRRItoria final event series will have the following webinars:

  1. How to engage citizens in regional development policies, Tuesday 18th January 2022 from 14:00 to 16:00 CET
  2. Institutional changes for Responsible Research and Innovation, Thursday 20th January 2022 from 14:00 to 16:00 CET
  3. The way forwardTuesday 25th January 2022 from 14:00 to 16:00 CET

Angela Simone, Project Coordinator of TRANSFORM, will present our work and experience in implementing co-design, co-creation and citizen science in regional R&I governance and in working with quadruple helix stakeholders to create more open, transparent and inclusive regional R&I ecosystems.

Join us on Tuesday 18 January from 14:00 to 16:00 CET.

16 December; 15:00 – 16:30

#ResponsibleRegions is a series of monthly webinars dealing with the concepts of the Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3) and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). EURADA and the TeRRItoria consortium are organising these webinars with the aim of sharing the valuable experience of Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) and local actors in developing and adapting strategies for regional development.

We are pleased to announce that we will be joining forces for the twelfth and final webinar, presenting TRANSFORM. Giving citizens a seat at the table of R&I regional policymaking. The Lombardy region case.

Angela Simone, TRANSFORM project coordinator and leader of the Lombardy regional cluster, will take you though Lombardy’s experience and approach to integrating citizen engagement activities into regional R&I governance, the results of which have been incorporated into the 2021-2023 Strategic Programme for Research and Innovation.
