Research and innovation policies face serious challenges regarding the new ways of generating and applying knowledge, the incorporation of diverse actors and stakeholders into research and innovation activities, and the need to align scientific activities and outcomes with societal needs. INGENIO contributes to the development of new concepts and analytical approaches to the design, implementation and assessment of research and innovation policies.

Jordi Molas, INGENIO (CSIC-UPV)'s director, will be a keynote speaker this afternoon in the opening day of the European Environmental Evaluators Network Forum 2020. His conference is entitled: "Evaluating Transformative Innovation Policies: implications and challenges". 

This year's edition of the EEEN 2020 Forum will focus on the development of environmental evaluation approaches, the role of evaluation in Agenda 2020 and 2030 or the risk assessment as a tool for advancing sustainability in environmental evaluation, among others.

Alejandra Boni, Deputy Director of INGENIO (CSIC-UPV), has been named fellow of the Human Development and Capability (HDCA).

The HDCA is a global community of academics and professionals whose main goal is to promote academic research in public policies in the area of human development and well-being. This association is composed by members of different fields: economics, philosophy, development studies, health, education, law, government and sociology, among others.

The COVID-19 health crisis has had and will have a big impact in our lives. It is a complex situation that is challenging to all of us as individuals, families and workers.

MAGGIE has developed a tool based on indicators that evaluates the gender gap that exists in high-level political events. COVID-19 has altered the way the academic and political conferences are carried out, changing what we know and are trying to study. MAGGIE’s team has then been working on adapting its tool indicators and the monitoring process so it can also be used for online events, not only in situ.

El reto de la infraestructura urbana en la época del cambio climático
08/04/2021 Vanesa Castán Broto - Universidad de Sheffield

El urbanismo climático marca una nueva época en la manera de entender la ciudad, una época marcada por la necesidad de responder al cambio climático. Por un lado, nos vemos en la disyuntiva de reducir las emisiones de carbono, por el otro, nos vemos forzados a buscar soluciones a unos impactos de cambio climático cada día más aparentes: sequía, incendios, inundaciones, olas de calor afectan a las ciudades expuestas a una gran vulnerabilidad. El urbanismo climático emerge como una respuesta a ambos retos.

Moralizing Discourses of Artificial Intelligence Strategies
24/02/2021 Itziar Castelló - Surrey Business School

European institutions formulating Artificial Intelligence (AI) national strategies  try to square the aspiration to exploit its potential with safeguarding their communities against its perceived ills. We show how national strategies  use discursive strategies to construct a new morally oriented social contract. We point to three main strategies aiming at creating the new meaning of AI outlining its moral domain, stabilizing meaning through identification with AI, and enacting meaning via an emotional tension between fear and hope in AI.
