Research and innovation lie at the heart of Europe’s economic strategy and make a critical contribution to the development of its society and cultures. They are a key source of new jobs, growth and competitiveness and underpin a wide range of policy priorities including digital Europe, energy efficiency and sustainability.
Following its ambition of creating a European Research Era, the EU Commission has developed a number of Research Infrastructures, as part of a bigger vision of EU harmonisation. These are expected to be financially sustainable, to measure their performance and socio-economic impact.
There are multiple ways in which research achieves impact and creates value. The aim of this workshop is to explore ways in which the return on investment in research can be assessed and evaluated. We will focus in particular on investment in Research Infrastructures implemented by the European Union, following the recommendation of the ESFRI group. We will also address the question of the future of RI, the conditions of their success and the effectiveness of their dialogue with society.
Registration deadline: 28 December 2018
