RI4C2 - Research & Innovation For Cities & Citizens

The seven universities composing the European Universities Alliance “EC2U” are again joining forces to extend the activities of the EC2U Alliance to the Research and Innovation fields. The project is funded under the European Commission's Horizon 2020 "Science with & for Society" call.

In this project, the seven partners have the joint overall objective to create a shared Pan-European Knowledge Ecosystem (PEKE). The project will develop a process that involves a gradual and adaptative transformation of all aspects of the Research & Innovation (R&I) missions at the participant universities. This will include developing a research and innovation agenda and platform, offering workshops on the topic of people empowerment, and investigating which factors promote the development of a functioning knowledge ecosystem.

 

RI4C2 Arbeitspakete und Aktivitiäten

RI4C2 is divided into eight work packages (WP):

  • WP1 “Transformation management”, Leitung: Universität Poitiers
  • WP2 “EC2U R&I agenda”, Leitung: Universität Salamanca
  • WP3 “EC2U People empowerment”, Leitung: Universität Coimbra
  • WP4 “EC2U R&I platforms”, Leitung: Universität Pavia
  • WP5 “EC2U Innovation sphere”, Leitung: Universität Jena
  • WP6 “EC2U Knowledge ecosystems”, Leitung: Universität Iasi
  • WP7 “Open EC2U”, Leitung: Universität Turku
  • WP8 “Transformation dissemination”, Leitung: Universität Poitiers

The University of Jena is spearheading activities in the field of innovation. "In our work package ‘Innovation Sphere‘, we want to create offerings to further bring together the spheres of science, business and urban society," explains Dr. Dana Strauß of JenaVersum. Plans include networking the research and transfer institutions of the European partners, discussing the conditions for innovation to succeed and publishing them in a joint "cookbook for innovation”. A university- and city-wide makeathon on the topic of "Reinvent the Future" is planned for 2023, where all interested parties can contribute their own ideas.
