Ingenious Science shops to promote Participatory Innovation, Research and Equity in Science.


Open call results

The results of the open call to expand the SS 2.0 model will be made public on the project website.

Data management plan

The plan will detail the planning, management and final use of data generated by InSPIRES.

Comparative assessment between the existing impact evaluation methodologies and the innovative methodologies proposed by InSPIRES

Comparative assessment between the existing impact evaluation methodologies and the innovative methodologies proposed by InSPIRES will be produced in order to identify the methodology that contribute to highest impact at the community level.

Report on the potential Science Shop 2.0 Model including transformative ambitions, impacts, social innovation potentials

This report will gather the results of the participatory-deliberative event and provide and evaluation of the transformative ambitions, potentials and impacts of science shops and envision how to strengthen this potential for future development. This report will also point out opportunities and pinch points for further development of science shops.

Results of the systematic Litera-ture Review

The protocol to conduct the systematic literature review will be available online, as well as the results that will be then compiled in a scientific article that will be sent for publication in an open access peer reviewed journal.

Description of the new models for more inclusive Science Shops

After the pilots are tested and validated, the models and methodologies will be described in a report.

Results of the pilot projects on new models for SS

This deliverable will report on the pilot projects conduct in 8 countries.

Improved impact evaluation methodology for Science Shops

A report explaining the steps and process required to implement the impact evaluation in different types of SS will be produced.

Results of the new SS 2.0 models, including links with public engagement activities

This deliverable will report the results of the interviews, and engagement activities, conducted in three countries and the wider Delphi study to develop new suggestions to link public engagement activities to SS.

Data base of science shop projects

This data base will compile (i) previous most significant SS projects and (ii) will be continuously popu-lated, through collaborative effort, with new generated SS projects.

Training videos addressed to all RRI stakeholders

A series of videos will be co-created with all the consortium partners during different projects highlights (summer schools, on the field training sessions, international pilot projects…) between Month 5 and 27. They will represent one of the key components of the upcoming eLearning tool.
