The Final Conference of the project MIRRIS (Mobilising Institutional Reforms in Research and Innovation Systems) is organised in cooperation with the Unit “Reflective Societies” of the DG Research and Innovation of the European Commission. The aim of this high-level conference is to present the key factors that make an impact on the participation of EU13 countries to the Research and Innovation programmes funded by the European Commission – FP7/H2020.

Through a three-year extensive policy dialogue and mutual learning exercise involving research, innovation and institutional actors, MIRRIS has identified country-specific gaps and barriers, and finally contributed, together with the key national policy stakeholders in EU 13, to the definition of a roadmap prioritising interventions to better address the participation to the European research area.

The main finding of the research will be presented and discussed together with some of the beneficiary countries of EU 13 in order to hear their views on cooperation with MIRRIS and the impact achieved.
