EU Citizen science: Inspiring examples of societal engagement for Horizon Europe
Published on: 04/11/2022
A policy priority of the renewed European Research Area is to improve the interaction between the research system and society at large. The Pact for Research & Innovation in Europe, adopted by the Council of the EU in November 2021, established societal responsibility as one of its main principles. Engaging citizens in the design and implementation of research and innovation policies can improve the quality of research outcomes as well as the impact of funding, and ultimately helps build trust and understanding between science and society.
The selected projects demonstrate the breadth of disciplinary areas and innovation themes where this mode of research and innovation can play a role, whilst providing inspiration to those interested in applying for Horizon Europe grants.
