Innovation camp smart specialisation in energy

Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Wednesday, 11 October 2017 17:45 - 17:00

Venue: Several locations - see description  |  City: Brussels, Belgium

The JRC and the Smart Specialisation Thematic Platform on Energy (S3PEnergy), in collaboration with CoR and EIT, organise an Innovation Camp these 11th and 12th October in Brussels. The event is oriented to provide joint response to pre-identified challenges that the S3 Energy interregional partnerships are currently facing.

These challenges include the engagement of civil society in interregional actions, the creation of innovative financial instruments for transnational commercial-scale demonstration projects, and the attractiveness of buildings rehabilitation investments for all the parties involved (including private users and banks, public sector, academia...).

Being a non-traditional event, this innovation camp will be carried out in an interactive way, based on interaction among diverse stakeholders to deal with the pre-identified challenges (co-creation process). Each team will be guided by a professional facilitator.
As the work advances, participants define potential implementation activities and plan for experimenting and piloting of those activities.
On the 2nd day, participants will present their ideas, solutions or prototypes. The best ideas will be picked up by the challenge owners and followed up together with the idea developers.

Policy makers from the 3 involved interregional partnerships (bioenergy, solar, sustainable buildings) will actively participate, as well as academics, researchers, experts and associations. Also, colleagues from the European Commission (DGs REGIO, ENER, JRC and GROW) will join these interactions aiming at contributing to the progress of smart specialisation via interregional cooperation.
