Description

What is it?

The Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI) is delivering a project called 'Online S3' which is an e-policy online platform that has useful applications and guidelines to assist EU local authorities in improving policy making.

Before the Online S3 project goes live, ECCI need to test the applications and guidelines with all members of society (businesses, students, policy makers) to make sure they are useful and user friendly.

We are looking for young professionals and students to participate in a 1.5 hour workshop with us at ECCI - in this workshop we will explain to you up to three applications and/or guidelines and ask you to complete a questionnaire with one of the team.

Why is this important?

The Online S3 project is hugely important at a European level as it supports local authorities to design and implement their EU2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, in other words, their ' Smart Specialisation Strategy'. The project is implemented by a consoritum of twelve partners across Europe - so your input will help to shape policy tools for all of these partners!

What do I get out of it?

As well as feeling great knowing that you've done a good deed...

  • You will get the opportunity to influence policy tools at European Level
  • Inspirational talk by Ed Craig, Deputy Head of ECCI & Head of Innovation and Enterprise
  • Information on useful applications that can be applied across sectors for enhancing project management
  • Free (veggie) pizza
  • All attendees will be entered into a prize draw and one lucky winner will recieve £50 to donate to a low carbon charity of your choice
  • We will also enter you into the 'Online S3 participants prize draw' (includes attendees from all our workshops) to win an iPad.
