The ‘Science with and for Society’ programme will be instrumental in addressing the European societal challenges tackled by Horizon 2020, building capacities and developing innovative ways of connecting science to society. It will make science more attractive (notably to young people), increase society’s appetite for innovation, and open up further research and innovation activities.
It allows all societal actors (researchers, citizens, policy makers, business, third sector organisations etc.) to work together during the whole research and innovation process in order to better align both the process and its outcomes with the values, needs and expectations of European society. This approach to research and innovation is called Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
Please be informed that participation in this event is only possible for those who have already registered and the priority will be given to the participants of bilateral meetings. Your participation is confirmed only when your profile is validated by the organisers.
