The Research Network on Innovation presents Forum Innovatin 2021 with the theme: Higher Education and Research: Vector of Responsible Innovation. The French conference will attract an international audience online, with some roundtable events organised in Paris.
The MOSAIC team from Université Gustave Eiffel are organising a session at the French innovation conference Forum Innovation. During the session, the recently published MOSAIC paper 'RRI legacies: co-creation for responsible, equitable and fair innovation in Horizon Europe' will be presented. The panel session will ask 'Responsible, research, responsible innovation: how do we get there?' and include contributions from across the MOSAIC consortium.
The European Commission is organising another edition of EU Green Week. It will take place on 31 May - 4 June 2021 and focus on the theme: Zero Pollution. The theme ties in with the European Green Deal and the adoption of the EU Action Plan 'Towards a zero pollution ambition for air, water and soil'. Click here for more information.
The first MOSAIC paper 'RRI legacies: co-creation for responsible, equitable and fair innovation in Horizon Europe,' will feature in a special edition of the Journal of Responsible Innovation next September. The paper discusses the 'new policy experiment' of Missions and Open Innovation and argues that co-creation can act as a linking-pin between the open science emphasis of Horizon 2020 and the open innovation accent of Horizon Europe.
The Public Communication of Science and Technology conference 2020+1 will take place this May, bringing together researchers, communication staff, science centres and museums, science journalists, students, writers, editors, visual artists and more. Rescheduled due to the pandemic, this year's theme is Time, Technology and Transformation, but will feature special presentations on the COVID-19 crisis and its interaction with science communication.
MOSAIC – Mission-Oriented SWafS to Advance Innovation through Co-creation – is a new Horizon 2020 project in the field of co-innovation. MOSAIC will consolidate past Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI ) project outcomes into one knowledge base and in doing so develop a new methodology. This co-innovation methodology will be tested in place-based innovation ecosystems in the frame of the Horizon Europe Mission on climate-neutral and smart cities.
The final conference for the Horizon 2020 project NewHoRRIzon will take place online in May. The programme is made up of breakout sessions that deep dive into RRI and co-creation contexts, exploring the future of the field in Horizon Europe and in the global research and innovation community. The virtual exhibition will be a chance to learn about social labs, pilot actions and other related RRI projects.
NewHoRRIzon has launched a Massive Open Online Course of Responsible Research and Innovation. The course is open to everybody to access free of charge. The course explores why it is important to act responsibility in research and innovation processes and reflects on different ways to apply such practices. Throughout the course, tools and case studies will be shared. Learn more and access the course here.
The Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) is a major European meeting on planetary science and consists of talks, workshops and posters. For the 2021 edition a call has been launched for a session on 'The role of citizen science in scientific research: across disciplines and beyond scientists'. Papers from scientists, educators and those who design, facilitate or evaluate citizen science projects are invited to cover topics including methodology, outreach and transformative approaches.
The MOSAIC project - Mission-Oriented SWafS to Advance Innovation through Co-creation - is a new SWafS call coordinated by Stickydot . The project explores a Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI ) approach to Open Innovation, involving a range of different stakeholders. The project will do this in a chosen ecosystem (city or metropolitan area), which will be focused on climate-neutral and smart cities, linking it to the Horizon Europe Mission.
