Open Science has the potential to change and make research more accessible to everyone. Citizen science and public engagement are important parts of Open Science and Horizon Europe, the new EU framework programme for research and innovation. But how do you engage and collaborate with citizens in your research project? Join this workshop to find out.
Involving society and its citizens in research helps to maximise the impact of new knowledge and improve understanding of the scientific process. But how do you engage and collaborate with citizens in your own work and research projects? What are the drivers, benefits and challenges and how do you ensure that you involve all relevant parties?
In this workshop organised by KTH Research Support Office and VA (Public & Science, you will learn about how to engage different types of stakeholders, what citizen science is and how it can strengthen your project proposals for Horizon Europe and other international and national R&I programmes, such as Digital Europe.
