Science in Society

Steve Parker - DG Research

Directorate L – Science, Economy and Society

European Commission


Science in SocietyBackground

  • Policy context

    • Lisbon and Göteborg Strategies (knowledge-based society, sustainable development) : political priorities of the European Union.

    • The success of these strategies require the involvement and active participation of citizens in the creation, sharing and dissemination of knowledge.

    • (Increasing?) distance and distrust from society regarding science and research.


Science in society work programmes 2007 2010

Work Programmes 2007 - 2010:

Follow the action lines of the Science in SocietySpecific Programme adopted in 2006

Set out the actions to be undertaken during the year

Progression in total budget:

2007: € 29.9 million (21.8 for the calls for proposals)

2008 : € 41 million (29.9 for the calls)

2009: € 34.5 million (31.8 for the calls)

2010: € 51.5 million (46.6 for the calls)

Science in SocietyWork Programmes 2007 - 2010


New approach from 2009

2009 Work Programme presented a significant change in our approach.

Prioritising more focused and structured actions with greater European added-value and impact.

A more effective critical mass of projects involving a wide range of key actors

This approach is developed further in 2010 and beyond

New approach from 2009


Work programme 2010

Greater research component

Pursuing broader public engagement in science and research – Mobilisation and Mutual Learning actions

More focused work on ethics

Engaging with and modernising universities

Science Education: in-service teacher training

Reinforcing links between science education and careers

Gender and Research

Science and the Arts

SiS-2010 1.0-1

Mobilisation and mutual learning actions (1)

- Each MML Action Plan will bring together a consortium of actors from different fields to cooperate on a common set of Science in Society Actions over a period of four years.

- Transnational exchange of best practice & mutual learning

- Consortium of actors from different at least 3 different disciplines: science academies, research institutions, universities, national or regional ministries, cities, CSOs, museums and science centres, media organisation etc.


Science in Society Work Programme 2010

SiS-2010 1.0-1

Mobilisation and mutual learning actions (2)

  • Proposals must define the type of SiS issues that will be addressed and the research fields to which they apply.

  • Examples in the call text of the issues that could be addressed and the type of activity that could be carried out.

  • Pay specific attention to the efficient management of the MML

  • Impacts include « improved mobilisation of research organisations and other actors, including civil society actors, to engage together on joint science in society actions »


Science in Society Work Programme 2010
