The InnoRate project is keeping up the good work, after almost five months of intense collaboration since its start. On Tuesday, May 28th 2019, the Co-creation Workshop will be the occasion to gather again the InnoRate consortium.
This time the project partners will join effort with a pool of recognised experts engaged in innovation financing. The event is organised by Tech Tour Global (TTG), with the support of all partners, and will be hosted by the European Business and Innovation Centre Network (EBN) in Brussels.
The occasion will engage key project stakeholders who were appointed as Advisory Board members with business, investor, academia, public and civil society sector background. During the Workshop, the participants will be introduced to the main concepts of the InnoRate Technology Rating System (ITRS) and services. Through group exercises, they will contribute to co-defining ITRS pillars. The selected themes for discussion will include the focal sectors, the pilot use cases, methodology and practicalities, and the technical aspects that will underpin the creation of the InnoRate platform.
The main concept behind the organisation of the workshop is “co-creation”. The event will be inclusive and participatory following the World Cafe’ format. The experts will be invited to discuss consecutively each of the focal themes, where skilled moderators selected among partners will lead and facilitate the discussion. During constructive exchanges of opinions, participants will provide feedback based on their valuable expertise and user experience. This will serve to validate the project’s approach and to design services that are better customized on the future users’ preferences and needs.
At the same time, the outcomes of the co-creation workshop will be leveraged to elaborate clear guidelines for the definition of customised methodologies, tools and services, to increase their acceptability and pave the way to the effective uptake of results after the project completion.
Let us welcome our experts in Brussels and wish the best of luck to all participants for a very fruitful and insightful Co-creation Workshop!
