The online CHIST-ERA Projects Seminar 2021 had a really good turnout!
More than 120 CHIST-ERA funded project representatives attended the seminar organised online on April 12-14:
- Day 1: 125 attendees
- Day 2: 160 attendees
- Day 3: 120 attendees
In addition, representatives of the CHIST-ERA funding organisations, review experts and innovation experts participated in the seminar.
The core programme of the Projects Seminar was divided in 3 afternoons:
- On day 1, there were sessions on CHIST-ERA success stories with past CHIST-ERA projects which managed successfully to exploit their research results, and expert sessions dedicated to Risponsible Research and Innovation, Open Science and Technology Transfer;
- On day 2, per topic parallel sessions were organised. During the first part of the parallel sessions, each project has to present its objectives, outcomes and expected impacts. During the second part, projects of a same topic discussed the future challenges of their research topic and prepared a joint presentation for the plenary of day 3;
- On day 3, the joint topic presentations were made in plenary. The Transition instrument of the European Innovation Council was also introduced to CHIST-ERA project representatives on this day by Marta Calderaro, FETFX Project Coordinator.
The presentations of the seminar will be made available on the CHIST-ERA website in the next days.
This year's seminar was organised online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are looking forward to the Projects Seminar 2022 to be organised in Spain!
