Challenging Futures of Science in Society Emerging Trends and cutting-edge issues

Funded under: FP7-SIS

Abstract

This report by the MASIS expert group is the first step of an innovative initiative of the European Commission, the MASIS Project: MASIS stands for Monitoring Activities of Science in Society in Europe. It represents a collective overview on emerging trends and cross-cutting issues in Science in Society, making it a potentially valuable tool for researchers and for decision-makers, who strive for excellence and relevance. It is forward-looking into a number of challenging futures and develops the hypothesis of a European Model of Science in Society which needs further discussion. European research policy will continue to stimulate reflections and debate on the ways science and technology supports developments in our societies, as well as on how the latter integrate and make sense of
research. European diversity is therefore an invaluable asset, from which we can all benefit.
