CONFERENCE: PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT FOR RESEARCH, PRACTICE AND POLICY – Exploring Policy Options for Responsible Research, Sustainability and Innovation

November 16 – 17, 2016

By setting public engagement (PE) as a key thematic element of responsible research and innovation (RRI), the European Commission promotes fundamental changes in the way in which civil society and other stakeholders outside the scientific community influence – and are expected to influence – research activities.

This policy conference, jointly organised by the PE2020 (Public Engagement Innovation for Horizon 2020) and the CASI (Public Participation in Developing a Common Framework for Assessment and Management of Sustainable Innovation) projects, will focus on best public engagement and sustainable innovation practices and identify common European priorities on how to stimulate societal engagement for sustainable innovation activities in European regions, scientific institutions, SMEs and other societal actors.

Venue: Committee of the Regions, Rue Belliard 99-101 B – 1040 Brussels
