TeRRItoria at the Triple Helix Association Summit 2020
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 edition of the Triple Helix Association (THA) Summit is going virtual from the 24th to the 26th of 2020. This edition will be focused on “designing a globally connected regional innovation ecosystem”.
In the framework of the THA Summit, TeRRItoria is organising a workshop “Introducing RRI principles to enhance regional innovation policies, including RIS3” that will focus on the role of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) as a facilitator to enhance citizen participation and societal impact on the local and regional research and innovation planning in Europe. It will provide practical examples of applied approaches from three European projects (TeRRItoria, SeeRRI and RRI2SCALE) in the process of implementation, funded under the Horizon 2020 Science with and for Society call “Supporting the development of territorial Responsible Research and Innovation” (SwafS-14), and will include a good number of experiences from a variety of local and regional R&I eco-systems. Based on these cases, the workshop will initiate a dialogue among Triple Helix stakeholders on how to ensure public engagement and societal relevance at all stages of the regional research and innovation cycle: planning, implementing, and monitoring and evaluation, with a special emphasis on RIS3.
This particular workshop will take place on Tuesday the 24th of November, from 15:20 to 16:10. It foresees the presence of Dr. Ildiko Ipolyi, Science Officer at the European Science Foundation; Mr. Nikos Zaharis, Director of the South East European Research Center; Dr. Nhien Nguyen, Senior Researcher at the Nordland Research Institute and associate professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology; Dr. Tatiana Fernández, Head of Economic Promotion at the Government of Catalonia’s Ministry of the Vice-presidency and of the Economy and Finance; and Dr. Margarita Angelidou, Manager of Territorial R&I Projects at Q-Pan International.
