EUROPEAN RESEARCH & INNOVATION DAYS: Let's shape the future together

European Research and Innovation Days is the European Commission’s annual flagship Research and Innovation event, bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.

This year marks the start of Horizon Europe, the most ambitious EU research and innovation programme ever. Participants will be able to hear first-hand about the programme’s new features and get insights on its structure from Commission staff at the event Village.

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.

The webinar took place took place on Wednesday, 16 June from 2 pm to 4 pm CET and it was held in Italian as it was targeting Italian stakeholders.

Citizen engagement activities in research and innovation and sustainable development organised by BE participation, the Belgian Platform for citizen participation within the framework of the TRANSFORM project, funded by Horizon 2020.

Two virtual workshops of 2 hours will take place on Saturdays 19 and 26 June 2021 from 10:00 to 12:00.

"A drop of water is enough to create a world."
Gaston Bachelard

Are you are interested in questions related to water, its nature and its quality… water, this common public good that lies at the heart of many environmental issues? Would you like to participate in a unique collective intelligence exercise that aims to make a project led by very promising Belgian innovators more connected to the needs and expectations of society?

This activity organised in two two-hour virtual workshops will be an opportunity for interested citizens to share their opinion on water quality, and to participate in fun and creative activities that will serve an ongoing science and innovation project related to water.

The objective of this activity is to engage a group of citizens in a collective intelligence process to co-create the future of a water-related innovation. The results that emerge from this process will be taken into account by the innovators. This activity is organised as part of the ‘Spheres’ pilot set up for TRANSFORM in the Brussels-Capital Region, the aim of which is to experiment citizen participation practices in science, R&I in the circular economy to influence policies in the matter.

Participants will be invited to the final TRANSFORM event in Brussels in 2022, which will present the results of unique citizen participation experiments in three European regions (Lombardy, Catalonia, Brussels-Capital).

If you are interested in the citizen workshops on water organised by the Belgian Platform for Citizen Participation, please register now: shorturl.at/vIN04 

You will then receive a link to the virtual workshop!
