Public consultation on Horizon 2020 “Science with and for Society” Work Programme
All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from civil society organisations, businesses, research institutions, policy makers, higher education institutions, science museums, science shops, scientific centres of excellence, local public authorities, cities of scientific culture, innovators and entrepreneurs (non-exhaustive list). The objective of Part V of Horizon 2020 ‘Science with and for Society’ (SWAFS) is “to build effective cooperation between science and society, to recruit new talent for science, and to pair scientific excellence with social awareness and responsibility”. Contributions to the present consultation will feed into preparation of the next SWAFS Work Programme 2018-2020. The Commission expects to develop the content of Work Programme 2018-2020 during the fourth quarter of 2016 and first semester 2017, with adoption and publication of calls for proposals in the autumn of 2017.
