  • RI-PATHS participatory workshops on the socio-economic impact of research infrastructures

    RI-PATHS participatory workshops on the socio-economic impact of research infrastructures https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/call-to-take-part-in-ri-paths-participatory-workshops-on-the-socio-economic-impact-of-research-infrastructures The aim of the RI-PATHS (Research Infrastructure imPact Assessment PaTHways) project is to develop a model describing the socio-economic impact of research infrastructures and their related financial investments. ELIXIR will be one of several case studies. The RI-PATHS team is kindly inviting the research infrastructure stakeholder community to take part in the refinement and substantiation of the socio-economic impact assessment model that the project team is currently developing. The aim is to generate a shared understanding of when, how and under what conditions investments in research infrastructures bring about various types of impacts. At the same time, workshop participants will be asked to focus on establishing the largest common denominator of what impact pathways are the most relevant and feasible to account for in an impact assessment. For further details about the workshop hosted by ELIXIR on 4th December 2018 (Cambridge, UK), including how to register, please visit https://ri-paths.eu/news/call-to-take-part-in-ri-paths-participatory-workshops/.
