The first PASSPARTOOL thematic workshop addresses the topic of “Non-R&D driven innovation" and is organised in two separate online sessions. Together they pursue three interrelated aims:

  • to build a shared and more sophisticated understanding of non-R&D driven innovation;
  • to identify interesting practices/experiences within the Passpartool consortium;
  • to explore the implications for monitoring and evaluating this type of activities.

In this online session, partners and stakeholders will share information on a selection of good practices and will discuss the monitoring and evaluation implications of the selected good practices.
