Work Programme 2010, Capacities, Part 5: Science in Society (European Commission C(2009)5905 of 29 July 2009)

Funded under: FP7-SIS


In the terms of the 7th Framework Programme, activities in the field of Science in Society aim to "stimulate, with a view to building an open, effective and democratic European knowledgebased society, the harmonious integration of scientific and technological endeavour, and associated research policies in the European social web, by encouraging pan-European reflection and debate on science and technology and their relationship with the whole spectrum of society and culture".
The 2020 Vision for the European Research Area (ERA) adopted by the Council of the European Union1 in December 2008 underlines that the ERA "is firmly rooted in society and responsive to its needs and ambitions in pursuit of sustainable development". This confirms the orientation taken by the Science in Society Work Programme: the aim is to ensure that SiS develops in a way that is integrated into the 7th Framework Programme and ERA as a whole.
The 2010 Science in Society (SiS) Work Programme builds on the new direction taken in the 2009 Work Programme, which prioritised more focused and structured actions with greater European added-value and impact, to promote a more effective critical mass of projects involving a wide range of key actors.
