Frugal Innovation by Citizens for Citizens

Project description

Frugal innovation by citizens for citizens

Citizen science is blooming across scientific disciplines. It can greatly benefit researchers, citizens of diverse backgrounds, policymakers and society along the entire research and innovation chain. The EU-funded FRANCIS project will leverage citizen science for the development of frugal innovations (FIs) that bring about affordable high-quality solutions. The project will do so by running open innovation challenges that bridge geographical distances and social backgrounds for the development of FIs with citizens from developed, developing and emerging countries. Specific attention will be given to the inclusion of marginalised groups such as the elderly, large families and people with a minimalistic lifestyle, all of which are often neglected by the economy and society.
