The most recent edition of the newsletter of the MIRRIS project on 'Mobilising Institutional Reforms in Research and Innovation Systems', in which ZSI is consortium partner is published!


  • The first news explores one of the most important considerations emerged by MIRRIS policy dialogues: the importance of being part of Brussels-based network and associations as a first step to successful application.
  • The second news provides a first, preliminary comparison of EU13 countries participation in H2020, as compared to the first two years of the Seventh Framework Programme.
  • The third news is dedicated to a webinar that will take place on 22nd October 2015, about which are the key factors influencing a successful participation of innovation systems to the European Research Area.
  • The fourth and final news is a reflection on disruption and on the key drivers of innovation in the new century. The reflection focuses in particular on the entrepreneurship culture – which is present differently from place to place – as a necessary underpinning cultural characteristic making possible the transition between knowledge and a vital knowledge economy.
