Interactive sessions

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 767162.

Participants are invited to interactive and participatory sessions in which a particular topic will be discussed ranging from new and upcoming challenges on the one hand, to coping with the real world implications of new technologies on the other. To have a stimulating and inspiring debate between participants, these sessions will be organised in two formats:


The fish bowl:

In this format, a small group of around 6 participants will discuss about the chosen topic, while the larger group can listen, and join the discussion at any time.

Fish bowl 1: Governance Systems
31 October (day 2), 14:30-15:30

Fish bowl 2: Networks/lab to fab/ecosystems
31 October (day 2), 15:30-16:30


The World Café:

Participants will move between a series of tables where they continue the discussion in response to a set of predetermined questions focused on the specific goals of each World Café. As well as speaking and listening, individuals are encouraged to write or doodle their ideas on a paper so that the next group can see what previous members have expressed in their own words and images.
