Last December, ERRIN organised a meeting with the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) to discuss about the Innovation Camps. Developed in 2010 by the Aalto University Campus in Espoo (Finland), the Innovation Camps have been adopted by the JRC and the Committee of the Regions as a tool to help regions identify and tackle societal challenges locally.
Since a call will be launched soon for funding a number of Innovation Camps around Europe, ERRIN is hosting a breakfast discussion with Stijn Verleyen, Coordinator for interinstitutional relations at the JRC. The meeting will take place on 3rd May from 08.30 to 10.30 at ERRIN and is open to ERRIN members only. Please find the agenda for the meeting attached herewith.
If you are interested in learning more about how to apply and get funded to run a camp, register below and join the meeting.
Prior to the event, participants are asked to identify key challenges that they are facing in their regions. These challenges will be used to support the discussions and help JRC / Innovation Camps to better address those challenges and finding solutions. Possibilities for an ERRIN innovation camp will also be explored.
If you want to know more about the Innovation Camps, please have a look at the slides from our December's session.
