FET DISRUPTIVE PROJECT IDEAS WEEK

Online, 27th to the 30th of October 2020

4-day course on the Top technology trends for long- term R&D and social impact: A unique mix of inspirational and practical contents for researchers to meet and dream together of disruptive projects for a better future

Aims & Objectives

IdeAcademy aims to align with the spirit of FET (Future and Emerging Technologies) within Horizon 2020,

By helping researchers to:

  1. Build R&D projects around Top FET Trends as areas with greater potential for long-term R&D focused in creating strong positive social or environmental impact.
  2. Create “creativity play-grounds” to think together about project ideas. This offers good opportunities specially to young and mid-career researchers looking for areas to focus their activities and efforts in the coming years.
  3. Increase their chances to reach long-term scope and get financial support.
  4. Leverage deep-tech collaboration and community building around new technological paradigms.
  5. Achieve interdisciplinarity, more and more important for the development of deep and disruptive technologies, increasing in complexity from scientific and technological perspectives and in terms of their potential impact in society, politics and environment.
  6. Reflect about the potential impacts technologies can bring to Earth and Humanity, considering UN’s Sustainable Development Goals as well as “Ethics by design”.

Influence decision-making in relation to the role of FET in coming Horizon Europe.

LIVE WORKSHOPS

Disruptive Ideas

A creativity live webinar on Top technology trends for long- term R&D and social impact.

A unique mix of inspirational and practical contents for researchers to dream of disruptive projects for a better future

This gets you in touch with the coordinator and allows you to book a spot in the workshop you want

For what?

Supporting researchers to work together in building high promising ideas for R&D projects within top emerging trends in technology with great potential for social impact and R&I development.

These trends have been identified, studied, informed and prioritised through a combination of the most advanced data mining AI engines, human intelligence and crowd/expert perception.

For whom?

Senior and young researchers in multidisciplinary areas such as new ways of Computing (i.e. neuromorphic computing), Artificial Intelligence, Life Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Biotechnology, Bionics, Advanced sensoring and materials, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, 3D printing, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

It is also open to high-tech SMEs and people interested into prospective activities, creativity and ideation.

How?

Using creativity techniques and usable tools for online collaboration. Planned agenda:

09:00 – 09:30 Welcome opening and presentation of participants
09:30 – 10:00 Trend(s) presentation by PREFET and invited researchers
10:00 – 11:30 Creativity Round 1
11:30 – 11:45 Break
11:45 – 13:45 Creativity Round 2
13:45 – 14:15 Break
14:15 – 15:15 Creativity Round 3
15:15 – 15:30 Wrap-up and next steps

The following tools will be used for online interaction: Tele-conferencing platform (GoToMeeting) and Online participation tool (Miro).

When?

This is the list of workshops planned and who sponsors each of them (the sponsor is a regional/local organisation who knows very well the prioritities of research in their area and help us choosing the trends to work into and anchoring our activities across European territories):
