The Italian translation of the OECD report: Innovative Citizen Participation and New Democratic Institutions I Catching the deliberative wave

Report of the deliberative process conducted within the EU H2020 TRANSFORM project

The report aims to illustrate the first Citizens’ Jury conducted in Italy on Responsible (data-driven) Smart Mobility. In June 2022, 24 people residing in Lom- bardy Region gathered in Milan to learn, discuss and form recommendations to be delivered to Lombardy Region in order to make regional policies on these issues more responsible and inclusive.

This Policy Brief outlines recommendations for policymakers willing to embark on citizen engagement actions for research and innovation and promote institutional changes in terms of RRI embedding within regional governments.

These recommendations are grounded in the lessons learned by project partners in the implementation of TRANSFORM in the first 15 months of its lifetime within the three clusters involved in the project (Brussels Capital Region – Belgium; Catalonia – Spain; Lombardy – Italy) and cross-cluster activities.

First-person experiences of endometriosis in Catalonia: recommendations of women with endometriosis for improving health care services and public policies. TRANSFORM Policy Brief 2022

This Policy Brief is the result of a participatory research using citizen science methodologies where women have acted as co-researchers talking in first person about endometriosis in Catalonia. The research aims to explain and raise awareness about how endometriosis is experienced and how it affects people’s overall health, as well as for the women themselves to generate first-person recommendations to improve diagnostic and care services. This Policy Brief is aimed at policy makers and health professionals.

Press Release

On the 31st of December 2020, TRANSFORM concluded its first year of implementation. On this occasion, we reflect on the project’s activities and outcomes. We kicked off the project in the midst of the global pandemic, which in the end, accompanied us the whole year through and beyond. Despite challenging circumstances and shift to the virtual space, we found a shared vision among the partners and launched the tasks as planned.

Endometriosis affects 10% of girls, women (and sex-gender diversities) of reproductive age worldwide. Its diagnosis takes between 8 and 10 years from the onset of symptoms, a time during which these people suffer serious physical, psychological, social and professional consequences. Participatory research on endometriosis has resulted in the co-creation of 6 general and 28 specific recommendations, written in the first person by patients, with the aim of informing public health policies and contributing to improving the clinical approach and care services to patients.
