« Go to Upcoming Event List  

Public engagement in research has been established as a cornerstone of the responsible research and innovation agenda which pervades all European research funded in Horizon 2020. Such engagement calls for the involvement of a cross section of stakeholders in research such as industry, researchers, policy makers and civil society organisations.

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the CONSIDER project (Civil society organisations in designing research governance) organize a conference on Civil society in research and innovation to be held at the EESC premises, in Brussels, on 28 January 2015 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The event aims to highlight work undertaken by EESC and the CONSIDER consortium and stimulate debate between representatives of the main stakeholder groups involved in civil society in research. It will contribute to the development of evidence-based research policy in Europe and its member states. By highlighting current practice and factors that influence the success of civil society organisations involvement in research, the event provides insights into good practice that can be the basis of future policy.
