SUGGESTED SESSION DURATION

Time frame:

2- 4 hours

This methodology setting aims to involve key actors from the energy and innovation systems in a common reflection and exchange in the energy transition context to discuss how to build more open, inclusive and responsive regional R&I ecosystems.

In order to provide the necessary atmosphere and trust space for the participants, it is suggested to create breakout groups of discussion after an introductory reflection.

Discuss the following questions in the breakout groups and answer them considering your personal experience:

  1.  What are the drivers in energy & innovation and what are the barriers? 

  2. What are the directions that you consider desirable, responsible and better aligned with societal needs and demand in the energy system?

  3. Are stakeholders in the energy system able to find, meet and engage? 

  4. Who should be involved in the Innovation process and when they should be involved /how? 

  5. Who is in the position to influence the directionality of R&I and who should be included?

  6. What might be possible drivers, enabling factors for RRI implementation in your territory? What, on the contrary, you see as main obstacles related to the possible introduction of RRI:

    •  within your organisation

    •  at territorial and policy level.

Reflect on the answers of the different groups and comment on the results.
