This session runs with: MOTION Handbook: Tools for Transformative System Change; and A model for the transformation of the learning environments of the public schools of the city of Bogotá for science, technology and innovation.

Cada proyecto tendrá una presentación de 10 minutos con 30 minutos de preguntas y respuestas. 

While the importance of science for policy making is often highlighted, particularly early-career researchers often lack an understanding of the real world policy process, the role of science in policy making and the skills needed to engage with policy makers. Without such capabilities, potentially transformative ideas and research risk slipping through the cracks without making an impact.

Against this background, science to policy training is a capacity-building intervention that aims at improving early career researcher’s skills and expertise to meaningfully engage with and shape innovation policy. As such, it aims to increase the transformative potential of early-career researchers’ output by improving and communicating the relevance of their research and thus impact real-world policy processes. By providing junior scholars with a fundamental understanding of policy processes and the role of science from a practitioners point-of-view, we aim to help them define and strengthen their role and contribution to transformative innovation policy processes.

Lasse Bundgaard
Lasse Bundgaard ha realizado su doctorado en el Departamento de Organización de la Escuela de Negocios de Copenhague. Su tesis doctoral fue dirigida por la profesora Susana Borrás e investigó el desarrollo de soluciones Smart City. Explorar específicamente los resultados de las asociaciones de innovación público-privadas involucradas en el desarrollo de soluciones urbanas para los desafíos planteados por el cambio climático y el aumento de la urbanización. Actualmente, Lasse es investigador postdoctoral en la Université Gustave Eiffel de París, donde estudia Políticas de Innovación Transformativa a nivel de ciudad como parte de un proyecto adscrito a LISIS (Labotoire Interdisciplinaire Sciences Innovations Sociétés). El proyecto estudia el surgimiento de Políticas de Innovación Transformativa a nivel de ciudad, desarrollando un marco novedoso para analizar los procesos de políticas locales que sustentan los esfuerzos de las ciudades para ser ambiental, social y económicamente sostenibles.
Michael J. Bernstein
Michael J. Bernstein is a scientist at the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and Assistant Research Professor at Arizona State University. He applies descriptive and participatory social science research methods to align research and innovation with long-term societal interests, like sustainability. Michael currently focuses on ethical assessment of new and emerging technologies for the EC-funded TechEthos project. In addition, he is developing foresight and strategic planning tools to support business innovation for social value (The Global KAITEKI Center, Arizona State University). From 2017-2019 he served as a work-package leader of an EC-funded project to assess and advance responsible research and innovation across European R&I funding (NewHoRRIzon). He has supported transdisciplinary urban sustainability (GLOCULL); staffed a participatory Technology Assessment (pTA) to inform U.S. Department of Energy decision-making about siting nuclear waste (ECAST); and evaluated science policy STEM education programs (SOtL). Michael has experience collaborating with formal and informal science and engineering educators, researchers, policy makers, businesses, and civil society organizations at local, national, and international levels. He has contributed to policy and evaluation initiatives on climate preparedness, resilience, and adaptation for the U.S. White House Council on Environmental Quality and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
