Research and Innovation Infrastructures (RIIs) are key assets for the EU, for the scientific community as well as for applied research purposes. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has clearly shown how much research capacity provides a boost, at all levels, to tackle global and urgent problems. The last four years partners from eight European regions have worked together to identify the best practices of RIIs accessibility models and to improve the research and innovation policy in their territories.
In October 2020 the INNO INFRA SHARE project partnership is organizing an online conference in two sessions on accessibility and interregional cooperation in research innovation development and exploitation. The INNO INFRA SHARE final event intends to share knowledge on the partners experiences on RIIs, and to reflect on key elements related to RIIs potential. This will be done with the contribution of knowledgeable keynote speakers, project partners representatives, the European Commission and the Interreg Europe Joint Secretariat.
The first session RESEARCH AND INNOVATION INFRASTRUCTURES AND THEIR EXPLOITATION that takes place on 6th October, 2020 will showcase business models for RIIs, EU strategy for technology infrastructures and give exciting examples from The Netherlands, Belgium and Italy of RII accessibility to industries and innovative infrastructure ecosystems. Detailed program here.
The second session INTERREGIONAL COOPERATION FOR INNOVATION that takes place on 27th October, 2020 will focus on the importance of interregional cooperation for development for stronger research and innovation ecosystem in Europe. It will showcase the potential of digital innovation hubs as facilitators of industry transformation and analyze barriers and opportunities for interregional innovation networks.
