Common research and innovation strategies in the focus of the upcoming TORCH Forum
Within its Research & Innovation dimension (TORCH), the CHARM-EU Alliance is working to develop its challenge-driven transformative R&I agenda based on a transdisciplinary and intercultural vision to solve complex societal challenges. The TORCH Annual Open Forums provide the possibility to share results and achievements related to the project and discuss them together with stakeholders, other European University Alliances and institutions.
The second TORCH Annual Forum deals with the topics of research assessment reform, fostering equality, diversity and inclusion in research, championing open science and citizen science, promoting inter- and transdisciplinary research and fostering R&I cooperation between universities. The event will reflect on TORCH results connected to the Alliance’s shared common R&I policies and strategies, discuss the differences between universities regarding responsible research and innovation (RRI) and uncover legal, financial and regulatory barriers to RRI practices.
The Forum will include the outlook of the European Commission, University Alliances and stakeholders interested in research and innovation as well as university-industry-citizen collaboration. All university leaders, researchers, innovators, policymakers and actors interested are welcome to join and share their perspectives.
You can find the programme and register for the hybrid event on the website of the Second Annual Forum.
