PERARES

Public Engagement with Research And Research Engagement with Society

Public Engagement with Research And Research Engagement with Society (PERARES) is a four years project funded by the European Community’s 7th Framework Programme started in 2010. The project aimed to strengthen public engagement in research (PER) by involving researchers and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the formulation of research agendas and the research process.

It used various debates (or dialogues) on Science to actively articulate research request of civil society. To be able to answer to research requests, it was necessary to enlarge and strengthen the network of research bodies doing research for/with CSOs. Thus, ten new Science Shop like facilities throughout Europe were started, mentored by experienced partners.
