Contribute to the development of the Codes of practice on industry-academia co-creation and citizens’ engagement

The European Commission is inviting stakeholders to provide their input on a draft Code of practice on industry-academia co-creation for knowledge valorisation and a draft Code of practice on citizens’ engagement for knowledge valorisation. All interested stakeholders are invited to voice their opinion and fill in the surveys until 20 October 2023.

The two draft codes of practice follow from the Council Recommendation on the guiding principles for knowledge valorisation to provide more concrete and detailed guidance on industry-academia co-creation and citizen engagement to improve knowledge valorisation. The Commission aims to collect further input to the finalisation of the two codes of practice that shall be instrumental to raise awareness and guide research and innovation actors in implementing good practices for effective knowledge valorisation.
