Dimitri - EU Stakeholder Forum 2

On 15th and 16th November 2022, the European Commission launched its first European Partnership Stakeholder Forum. The Forum focused on the review of the first year of European Research and Innovation Partnership initiatives in Horizon Europe and in particular, how they can contribute to the twin green and digital transitions, as well as increasing Europe’s resilience.

The Forum was opened by Signe Ratso, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (RTD). Representatives of Transnational Partnerships joined the Forum and participated in a packed agenda of activities.

Dr Dimitri Gagliardi was involved in the organisation of two workshops and acted as rapporteur for the session on Resilience Health and B4 Synergies with Industrial Strategies.

He also acted as panellist in the plenary: Partnerships’ Directionality discussing with Fabienne Gautier, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation Head of Unit G4 “Common Missions and Partnerships Services” and co-panellists of the European Partnerships strategic approach to resilience and synergies in Health Research and Innovation.

ERA-LEARN is a support platform for the R&I partnership community, funded as a support action (CSA) by Horizon 2020. The project is a 4-year initiative (2018-2022), following up on its predecessor ERA-LEARN 2020. On behalf of the European Commission, ERA-LEARN operates a unique database of partnership initiatives, their calls and funded projects and provides studies and analyses on thematic clustering, internationalization, alignment and much more.

The ERA-LEARN consortium brings together public authorities from all over Europe, all key players in P2P implementation, as well as highly experienced specialists in the analysis of research strategy and research policy.

Researchers based at Manchester Institute of Innovation Research have been involved in Era-Learn since its inception.
