With ENLIGHT RISE (Research and Innovation agenda with and for SociEty) we will support ENLIGHT in its R&I dimension, to deploy a comprehensive joint transformation agenda, in synergy with the educational component, in partnership with surrounding ecosystems, and with the overarching goal of serving our societal missions. The objective is to become more competitive and innovative together, leveraging and synergizing our respective strengths and capitalizing on our innovation potential and partnerships with our surrounding ecosystems to jointly promote a greener, healthier, more equitable and sustainable Europe. To reach these goals, ENLIGHT RISE will 1- establish a longer term business model for joint R&I actions, 2- identify strong research synergies with high innovation potential 3- enable the sharing of and optimize capacity or digital research infrastructures, while benchmarking and optimizing the societal impact of digital innovation/artificial intelligence, 4- reinforce cooperation and co-creation with the business sector and civil-society, 5- mainstream and incentivize open science practices and public engagement, 6- improve the attractiveness of researchers’ careers, and 7- develop and formalize methods towards an impact-driven R&I agenda.
