Tender: monitoring policy and research activities on 'Science in society' in Europe

The European Commission's Directorate-General for Research has published a call for tenders to monitor policy and research activities on 'Science in society' in Europe.

The MASIS ('Monitoring research and policy activities of science in society') service contract will set up, in cooperation with EU Member States and associated countries, a system to map and follow the developments of the most important 'Science in society' activities at national and European levels with the aim to:
- inform relevant policy makers and all other stakeholders;
- increase the visibility of such activities in different parts of Europe;
- increase their impact on European policy and society.

MASIS will build upon existing national, regional and European resources where these exist, providing them with visibility and enhancing their European dimension. Where such resources do not exist, MASIS will launch information gathering measures with the help of a network of national correspondents. The contract will include a set of national reports, a synthesis report on 'Science in society' activities in the European Research Area, and the maintenance of an online system to be linked to the EU 'Science in society' portal.
