Dialogues Network: ‘Democratizing Innovation: A Virtual Dialogue Event’
As part of their European Comission funded project, RiConfigure has been hosting dialogue events, and given the pandemic segued to a virtual format for their second session. ‘Democraztizing Innovation: a virtual dialogue event‘ was held from July 6 to 10, primarily targeted to a cross-sectoral audience, including project partners from Europe and Colombia. Core to the idea of “democratizing innovation” is RiConfigure’s framing of a “quadruple helix” approach, expanding the “triple helix” concept to bring together actors from the business or industry sector, the public sector, academia, and civil society to imagine and deliver innovation for people and problems. Part of this is explicitly strategic and political, ensuring that stakeholders, funders, citizens and policy people are all meeting and working from a common understanding.
Through their ‘Democratizing Innovation‘ event, RiConfigure are a part of the 2020 After Shock Dialogues Network, and a report capturing key insights from the event series is available here.
