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.

Carolina Cañibano, INGENIO (CSIC-UPV)'s researcher, will join the European Regional Meeting of the Global Research Council, which is hosted by the Spanish National Research Council between 21st and 22nd of October 2021 in Madrid.

Marta Maicas Pérez, INGENIO (CSIC-UPV)'s PhD student is doing a Research visit at Gender Studies Department in Tampere University, in Finland. Yesterday she presented the theoretical chapter of her thesis project at the first hybrid Gender Studies seminar celebrated by the group. Johanna Kantola, Professor of Gender Studies at Tampere University, is hosting this research visit. 

Alejandra Boni, INGENIO (CSIC-UPV)'s deputy director, will lead a public lecture on Transforming socio-technical systems through evaluation and present her latest work on the evaluation of transformative innovation policies to kickstart the Colloquium on Transformative Innovation Policy: Perspectives from South Africa, organized by the Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium (TIPC). The event will be via Zoom on Wednesday 13th at 16:00.

The Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium (TIPC) is organizing the 2022 TIP Conference, which is going to be held digitally from 17-21 January 2022. The "Call for Participation and Initiatives" is now open from 18 June 2021 to 20 August 2021. If you want to apply, please send an Expression of Interest (EoI) that does not exceed 1000 words.

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.

Evaluating Gender Equality in Research and Innovation – Theories, Methods, and Results
21/10/2021 Susanne Bührer - Fraunhofer Society

In this seminar the results of a European project called EFFORTI (Evaluation Framework for Promoting Gender Equality in R&I) will be presented. In this research  developed an offline and online toolbox that
helps to analyze and model the influence of measures to promote gender equality on research and innovation outputs and on establishing more responsible and responsive R&I (research and innovation) systems has been developed.

Inteligencias múltiples, datos e innovación transformadora
24/09/2021 Mara Balestrini - Inter-American Development Bank Innovation Laboratory

La presentación discutirá cómo se puede aprovechar la combinación de múltiples formas de inteligencia -desde la colectiva hasta la artificial y la de las plantas- para abordar desafíos medioambientales a partir de procesos de ciencia abierta y co-creación de políticas públicas.

Un Planeta de Laboratorios Ciudadanos
18/06/2021 Marcos García - Red de Laboratorios Ciudadanos de la Comunidad de Madrid.

Paul Virilio decía que en algún momento viviríamos un accidente global que afectaría de manera simultánea a todo el planeta. Parece que algo así es lo que estamos viviendo y como suele pasar cuando sucede un desastre, éste nos devuelve a tierra. Es decir, nos hace más conscientes de nuestro entorno. En esta ocasión, de manera simultánea, podemos decir que nos ha hecho más conscientes de nuestro entorno más próximo -hemos conocido a nuestros vecinos de escalera- y al mismo tiempo hemos sentido la interdependencia entre lugares distantes.

La ciencia abierta en transición: ¿domesticación institucional o transformación lenta?
14/05/2021 Mariano Fressoli - Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas de Argentina

La creciente adopción de prácticas de ciencia abierta durante la pandemia de COVID-19, parece indicar un momento de creciente aceptación de las formas de colaboración abierta. Mientras UNESCO se prepara para lanzar su Recomendación sobre ciencia abierta, instituciones internacionales y nacionales han comenzado a consolidar sus planes y programas. Pero, con el reconocimento institucional también surgen los riesgos de domesticación de aquellos aspectos más transformadores de la apertura y la colaboración.

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.
