There is one week left for European cities and regions to submit their Expressions of Interest in the Horizon Europe Mission on Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities.
An upcoming OECD conference seeks to develop a policy agenda to pair the transformative potential of emerging technology with the need for good governance. It will explore how we can increase innovation actions that use inclusive processes to have a lasting, positive impact.
The call for Expression of Interest for the Horizon Europe Mission on Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities is now open. Through this mission, MOSAIC will test its mission-orientated co-creation methodology.
As part of its eight-part webinar series, the GRACE-RRI project is organising a webinar on considerations to take into account at the beginning of an RRI project. The webinar aims to facilitate knowledge exchange between ending and starting RRI projects, particularly considering lessons learned in the development and implementation phases. The session will also ask what legacies should be carried forward into the next generation of RRI projects and how to establish links between past and present projects.
This new video gives an overview of how the project is working to find the best ways to ensure the active participation of multiple stakeholders, including citizens, in mission-orientated settings.
The annual conference organised by DG ECFIN and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) will take place in November this year under the theme 'charting the European economy post-COVID-19: unusual times require unconventional policies'. The conference brings together European Institutions, researchers, academic institutions, think tanks, civil society and citizens to discuss and exchange on the latest research developments.

The 2021 edition of the European Week of Regions and Cities will bring other regions and cities from across Europe for the biggest annual event dedicated to cohesion policy. Four themes will structure the 2021 edition: cohesion, green transition, digital transition and citizen's engagement, all under the overarching heading 'together for recover'. Selected events from the programme that MOSAIC is especially looking for include: DateEventTimeLink
MOSAIC has launched its call for cities to benefit from the project's expertise in mission-orientated approaches and open innovation in the context of the Cities Mission.
The European Commission has published its Info Kit for Cities, full of comprehensive information about the Mission 100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities by 2030. The Info Kit is divided into two parts, the first focuses on understanding the Cities Mission , while the second is a 'short guide to urban climate neutrality.'
The SeeRII project's final conference, 'Bringing RRI into regional planning: from theory to SeeRRI', will take place in Barcelona in September 2021. Since 2019 the project has been working with European regional policymakers to explore responsible regional planning practices that can be used by regional governments. A call for posters for the conference is now open. Posters should showcase projects and practices implemented at the territorial level dealing with RRI.
