TalTech Industrial workshop on the EURITO project.

Monday, 18 April 2022 at 13:30-14:30 Zoom

A presentation by Juan Mateos-Garcia (Director of the Data Analytics Practice at Nesta in London, United Kingdom).

In this seminar, Nesta will present the results of EURITO (EU Relevant, Inclusive, Trusted and Open indicators for research and Innovation policy), a 3-year Horizon 2020 project to develop relevant, inclusive, trusted and open indicators to inform research and innovation policy in the EU. We will talk about the rationale for the project, how it was organised and the outputs we generated with a specific focus on our work to produce indicators about emerging technologies, sustainability and the R&D response to Covid-19. We will conclude with some reflections about lessons learned and policy implications for the evidence production system for research and innovation policy.

Juan Mateos-Garcia is the Director of the Data Analytics Practice at Nesta. He leads a team of data engineers, data scientists, data visualisation developers, policy experts and ethicists using data analytics to advance Nesta’s missions. Juan is interested in how data analytics techniques such as machine learning can be combined with other methods to achieve social impact, in how scientific research and innovation are being transformed by emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, and in the role of policy in ensuring that these emerging technologies evolve in directions consistent with the public interest and conducive towards a fairer society.

The seminar is in English.

This workshop is organised by TalTech Industrial project. TalTech Industrial has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 952410.
