Call to take part in the second round of RI-PATHS workshops

January 2019, 

As a follow-up to the scoping workshops held in November-December 2018, RI-PATHS project team kindly invites the RI community to express interest in joining the second round of participatory workshops on socio-economic impact assessment. Different from the first round of workshops where the emphasis was placed on identifying the main impact areas and co-designing the impact pathway logic, these workshops will focus on finding suitable indicators, metrics and assessment methods in specific impact areas. Emphasis will be placed also on discussing the existing best practices for data gathering and future data needs.

Workshops will be held:

  • 8 May 2019 at DESY (Hamburg, Germany) with a focus on quantifiable economic impacts of RIs. Read the workshop description and register here.
  • 9 May 2019 at ELIXIR (Cambridge, UK) with a focus on new ways of documenting network effects in research, innovation and training. Read the workshop description and register here.
  • 10 May 2019 at ALBA (Barcelona, Spain) with a focus on exploring impact-relevant interactions between RIs and users. Read the workshop description and register here.
