About the Series

Innovation Ecosystems for Sustainability®
is a new series of web-conferences created and curated by Cristina Vicini-Rademacher, Vice President of the Club of Rome – EU Chapter, and hosted quarterly in collaboration with EIRMA, the European Industrial Research Management Association, and with the participation of JEE, Junior Enterprises Europe Association. 

The series aims at stimulating the multi-stakeholders dialogue to inspire co-creation, identify the challenges and highlight concrete joint solutions, disruptors, and catalysts in view of accelerating our transition to sustainability.

Each web-conference brings together decision makers from different sectors in the economy, from the youth, and from our international members’ communities.

In the best tradition of the Club of Rome – EU Chapter, sustainability is addressed from a systemic angle (technological, societal, financial, ethical, industrial, policy and governance-related, etc.), exploring where and how Europe’s Green Deal’s goals could be reached much faster. 

Results from the Innovation Ecosystems for Sustainability web-conferences will be published quarterly, highlighting and sharing multi-stakeholder best practices, methodologies, and processes, concrete tools and metrics, for effective impact and food for thought along the sustainability roadmap.
