RI-PATHS Final Event: A European framework for socio-economic impact of research infrastructures: A way forward

Date(s) - 10/06/2020
8:00 am - 5:00 pm

RI-PATHS invites research infrastructures, funding agencies, policy makers and other interested stakeholders to the project final event on 10 June at CERN in Geneva.

Funded by the European Union’s research and innovation programme Horizon 2020,RI-PATHS project develops a framework for describing the socio-economic impacts of research infrastructures. Since January 2018, EFIS Centre, CSIL, ESF, Fraunhofer ISI, and four major European Research Facilities ELIXIR, CERN, ALBA and DESY have worked together in developing guidance material and practical tools for helping research infrastructures, policy makers and funders to scope and assess their impact on economy and contribution to society.

The event has two goals: first, to present the impact pathways guidance developed during the project period and, second, to launch a discussion on how the knowledge generated in this field can be put into practice. For this purpose, the event aims at gathering a broad audience including representatives of research infrastructure management and research infrastructure networks, representatives of funding agencies, research policy makers and other interested stakeholders. Invitees will include representatives from ESFRI, the European Commission, OECD, policy and evaluation organisations from third countries such as Canada, Australia and the US.

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research will host the event. This event is free of charge.
