Co-creating in Brussels


On the 28th of May the InnoRate Co-creation workshop was successfully held in Brussels!


The event was organised by Tech Tour Global (TTG), with the support of all partners, in the premises of the European Business and Innovation Centre Network (EBN) in Brussels.


39 participants from 11 European countries - the InnoRate Advisory Board members with representatives from InnoRate consortium discussed introduction of the InnoRate Technology Rating System (ITRS) main concepts and its services and the ITRS customisation, and mapped expert opinions on the barriers and opportunities that could shape the pilot uses cases set-up.



4 different expert groups were invited to consecutively join the discussions held at 4 different tables in a World Café format, each focusing on a different theme:

  • Theme 1: Co-definition of specific pilot use cases for InnoRate Service Platform testing;
  • Theme 2: Co-definition of sectors of focus for InnoRate Service Platform piloting;
  • Theme 3: InnoRate Platform methodology and practicalities;
  • Theme 4: InnoRate Platform Technical aspects



In the second part of the workshop, Table Rapporteurs drafted and presented the conclusions of the Parallel co-creation sessions. The outcomes are be leveraged to elaborate clear guidelines for the definition of customised methodologies, tools and services shaped according to the future users’ preferences and needs.


This is, however, only the beginning of the co-creation. There is more to come, especially when the different use cases will be piloted during the project.
