Funded under: FP7-SIS

Abstract

In the terms of the 7th Framework Programme, activities in the field of Science in Society have been identified to "stimulate, with a view to building an open, effective and democratic European knowledge-based 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". Action to promote Science in Society has passed from an experimental phase in the period 2002 to 2008 to a more mature phase 2009 to 2013 under the current Framework Programme, with fewer, more structured actions with stronger impact in the framework of the European Research Area (ERA). Building on the acquis and the most promising actions identified in the Mid-term Assessment of Science in Society Activities (2002-2006) and input from the Advisory Group on Science in Society, the work programme ensures "capitalization", continuity and development. Actions aim for a reinforced European added value, and to mobilise the most effective actors on science in society issues.
