In the new programme for research and innovation, expected to launch 1 January 2021, Ecsite would like to see an equivalent to the current ‘Science with and for Society’ (SwafS) strand. To further maximize Horizon Europe‘s relevance and impact, Ecsite suggests three communication objectives to the European Commission:
- Enhance European citizens’ scientific culture
- Involve stakeholders and citizens in R&I priority setting
- Make the topics of the Missions the talk of Europe
.Any organization that wishes to participate can simply download the open letter, which is addressed to the European Commissioner for Research and Innovation, Carlos Moedas.
