Citizen and Multi-Actor Consultation on Horizon 2020 (CIMULACT)
CIMULACT has as a main objective to add to the relevance and accountability of European research and innovation on EU as well as national level, by engaging citizens and stakeholders in co-creation of research agendas based on real and validated societal visions, needs and demands.
The project will expand the outlook and debate on STI issues, increase scientific literacy in a broad sense, which includes the understanding of the societal role of Science, Technology and innovation (STI), and create shared understanding between scientific stakeholders, policy-makers and citizens. This multi-actor approach will embrace EU28 plus Norway and Switzerland.
CIMULACT builds on the principle/conviction that the collective intelligence of society gives Europe a competitive advantage, which may be activated to strengthen the relevance of the European science and technology system. By establishing genuine dialogue between citizens, stakeholders, scientists, and policymakers, visions and scenarios for desirable futures will be developed and debated, and transformed into recommendations and suggestions for research and innovation policies and topics.
