Survey on societal engagement
The first activity within Engage2020 project is to map the use of methods for societal engagement in activities related to research and innovation. As part of this, we would like to invite you to take a short survey on the societal engagement methods you and your organisation have participated in. This survey will take around 5 minutes to complete, yet forms an important foundation for the future of science and its relationship with society.
Please answer one survey for each method you have used in engaging society in research and innovation related activities. Please be aware that all fields marked with “*” are mandatory.
We would highly appreciate if you will share this survey with relevant people in your network who have experience or knowledge of engaging society in research and innovation related activities.
The Engage2020 project will aggregate, assess, and increase the understanding of engagement in research and innovation. It will also highlight these methods to scientific actors and stakeholders (including CSO’s, citizens, consumers and users). The project targets the four different levels of Research and Innovation (R&I) processes, namely:
- Research and innovation policy formulation
- Programme development
- Research project definition
- Engagement in the concrete research and innovation activity
For further explanation of the Engage2020 project and these areas, please check-out this 5-minute video by the project coordinator, Lars Klüver from the Danish Board of Technology Foundation.
The Engage2020 project began in September 2013 and will end in November 2015. It is funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme and will deliver its main results in 2014 so that they can be considered in the policy design of Horizon 2020 activities beyond 2015.
