Co-creation workshop

Participation in future MICalls

Next to the official MI Side-Event, JPP SES offered two parallel sessions, one for programme owners and managers and one for need owners and researchers. The workshop on participation in future MICalls as a funding partner served to identify cooperation potentials on national and international level. Public funding institutions from all over the globe joined the discussion, among them current and potential partners in the MICall.

Moderated co-creation workshop for research challenges for MICall20

A co-creation workshop for the Joint Call 2020 (MICall20) united potential applicants with Living Labs and Digital Platform Providers to identify key research challenges for the focus areas addressed in MICall20. Together, they identified research needs and stakeholders to support the research and facilitate application. These challenges link technical, business and market operation as well as communication and serve as a basis for the Connectathon during the JPP SES Conference in October 2020 to match new cooperative research projects for MICall20.
