Background: how to realise change by upscaling public-private innovation projects?

*** make societal transitions happen ***

How can policy accelerate transitions such as the energy transition, aiming for a circular economy and more? Most transitions require public-private cooperation projects, and in the EU we have learned how to roll-out demonstration projects. Technology is no longer the main issue to address, we have to create change. Change that will cause the transitions needed for our societal challenges. To create change, we have to scale up successful pilots from European cities and regions. But how?

In our event on October 18, 2017, we aspire to lift more than a corner of the veil covering upscaling. We will present you scientific insights in upscaling of public-private cooperation based on research the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences did on 12 projects in the Amsterdam region.

We will illustrate these scientific insights with new examples from our region, within our two Metropolitan Challenges: Digital Connectivity and Circular Economy. And we will explain the role of local government to sustain the development of business models and upscaling. The EU addresses upscaling of projects in various noteworthy ways. How can we make the best of local and EU actions on upscaling? On this afternoon, we will discuss the insights with a panel of experts from EU and innovative regions. And with you!*

* We want the event to be as interactive as possible. From the moment of your registration until the drinks & bites after the event, please don’t hesitate to let us hear your ideas!
