HORIZON 2020 “SCIENCE WITH AND FOR SOCIETY 2018”

EFB is pleased to announce that today, on 29.01.2018, staff from EFB, in particular Dr. Piccinetti, will be attending the Horizon 2020 event entitled “Science with and for Society 2018”. Which will take place at Radisson Blue Royal Hotel, Brussels Belgium.

The brokerage event will be of particular interest and relevance to members of the Science with and for Society research community who are looking for networking and funding opportunities within Horizon 2020.

This event is organized by SiS.net2, the international network of National Contact Points (NCPs) in the field of Science with and for Society in Horizon 2020 in cooperation with the European Commission.

‘Science with and for Society’ 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), raise the appetite of society 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 termed Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
