FIGHTING AND ADAPTING TO CLIMATE CHANGE
Policy Co-Creation Workshop
on the impact of European research and innovation projects
Date: 28 April 2021
Time: 10:00-12:15 CEST
Registration is closed
What has been the impact of Horizon 2020 projects in helping us to fight and adapt to climate change? And how can policy actions create and stimulate the desired impacts in the fields of science, society and the economy? These were questions the IMPACT-SC5 project addressed, during a series of thematic Policy Co-Creation Workshops. First in the series was this workshop on Climate Change. This workshop was held online on 28 April 2021, 10:00-12:15 CEST.
The objectives of the workshop were to:
- discuss the results of our analysis regarding the Climate Change related projects of Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials (SC5)
- collectively identify how policy on national and European level can enhance the diffusion and uptake of impacts across the EU.
The co-creation workshop was organised in the context our IMPACT-SC5 “Assessing the impact pathways of IA/RIA SC5 projects through the use of portfolio analysis” project (GA No. 869746). IMPACT-SC5 reviews the 87 RIAs and IAs funded under the Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 5 – Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials – Work Programme 2014-2015, as well as its supplementary Work Programmes and calls. A briefing document showing the results of this portfolio was provided to participants and the recording can be watched here.
The proposed agenda for this meeting is as follows:
|Session 1 – Presentation of portfolio’s conclusions and panel discussion|
|Welcome and brief presentation of the IMPACT-SC5 project|
|Presentation of impacts from a project in the Climate Change portfolio: Vassilis Stavrakas, TRANSrisk project|
|Presentation of the portfolio impact assessment results and conclusions: Linda van Duivenbode, IMPACT-SC5 consortium|
|Expert discussion on the portfolio results and conclusions
Comments of each expert on our findings on:
|Session 2 – Co-Creation on Policy Recommendations|
|Approach and methodology utilised during the co-creation|
|Co-Creation: How policy on national and European level can enhance the diffusion and uptake of impacts across the EU.
During this session, participants were split into breakout rooms for a deeper discussion. Returning to the plenary session, a rapporteur presented the key findings from each group.
