Objective

FUND is a platform to enable active players in the cities to network and create opportunities for dialogue and engagement with science. We propose to create an online, open source support system to combine the willingness of the local actors to engage in dialogue and participatory activities with training, best practice and a knowledge transfer desk. Information, guidelines, materials, direct consultancy and contacts can improve the performances of a multitude of local experiences and help to build connections and links between widespread and varied European experiences.
FUND consists of an open source platform which allows all interested parties to innovate on the successful “Decide” format, and a scheme of microgrants to enable collaborations between science centers’ explainers and local organizations and city administrations.
