Improving interaction between ngo's, science shops and universities: experiences and expectations

Objective

INTERACTS examines the experiences and expectations of NGO's towards science shops and similar research institutions, in order to draw out policy implications for future cooperation. It will identify needs and demands and analyse how they can be met at European, national, regional and local level. The focus is on NGO's working at a local or regional level. The project involves a cross-national survey, using semi-structured interviews. The interviews will be with NGO practitioners, science shops and researchers and will build up a set of case studies on the impact of collaboration between NGO's and science shops on the work of NGO's, on public debate and on research at universities.
The findings of the study aim at developing suggestions for
a) better linkage between NGO's' science shops and research,
b) better dialogue between scientists, RTDI policy makers and NGO's;
c) European S&T policy.
The project is part of a network of science shops.
