On the 7th and 8th November 2017, Ceriss hosted the second part of the "High level seminars on Research and Innovation Policy" organised  by the EaP PLUS project.

The series consisted of two workshops, from which the first took place in Vienna on 12-13 October organised by EaP PLUS partner ZSI.

The main objective of the two 2-days seminars was to train participants on relevant topics in Research and Innovation policy.

Part 1: Vienna (12-13.10.2017)

The agenda for the seminar in Vienna comprised topics such as "The theoretical foundations of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Policies", "The paradigms in STI policy", "Innovation support instruments and programmes", "Responsible Research and Innovation", "Open data, open science, open access" and "New developments in peer review".

Part 2: Athens (07-08.11.2017)

In Athens the following topics were in focus: "Innovation measurements", "Intellectual Property Rights", "Performance measurement of organisations", "Benchmarking exercises", "International STI cooperation" and "Foresight exercises".

Additionally, participants visited Corallia Cluster and the Industrial Property Organisation (OBI) in Athens, where they toured each site and were informed about the organisations. 

In both seminars several high-level policy makers and high-level experts from policy-delivery entities (e.g. research funding agencies, research and innovation councils) from the Eastern Partnership countries participated.
