On September 24th Mario Biggeri, Scientific Director of ARCO, participated as a panelist to the open session “Towards a Champions League for Transition to Sustainability” organized by the DG for Research & Innovation of the European Commission for the 2020 European Research and Innovation Days.
In 2019, R&I Days session on “Re-defining prosperity’’ took stock of existing definitions and indicators regarding sustainability and stimulated new thinking about economics. This year, DG R&I and its Director-General Jean Eric Paquet are ready to present a conceptual framework to rank the EU Member States – and 45 other countries – on how they perform across the four dimensions of transition towards sustainability: economic, social, environmental and governance. The session aims at collecting feedback from experts and audience on this particular framework.

The value of this virtual event comes from building connections and encouraging fruitful exchange between diverse participants, in order to arrive at creative and impactful solutions.
