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.

A new webpage (in Italian) on TRANSFORM is online on the Lombardy Region’s “Open Innovation” portal, the platform devoted to inform and connect local research and innovation quadruple-helix actors.

In Lombardy, the goal of TRANSFORM is to support the regional government in identifying research and innovation citizens’ needs from the voice of the inhabitants. In fact, citizens’ priorities will be emerged from a participatory and deliberative process led by Giannino Bassetti Foundation with the support of Lombardy Region and Finlombarda.

The results of the process will be integrated in the definition of regional research and innovation strategies and, more specifically, in the preparation of the Three Years Strategic Plan for Research, Innovation and Technology Transfer (PST) 2021-2023, the document that defines the regional priorities in these areas for the next three years.

The new Open Innovation webpage will accompany the whole participatory and deliberative process carried out in Lombardy in the framework of TRANSFORM, so as to guarantee information transparency by providing citizens and interested stakeholders with an overview of the project and regular updates on the public engagement path.
