At the heart of the ORION project will be open “co-creation” experiments that engage multiple stakeholders to explore different ways to make scientific research more participatory. The goal of this new participatory approach, coined as Open Science, is to align the whole research process with the values, needs and expectations of society. One specific objective of Open Science is to ensure good governance of research, referred to as Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).

For science to be truly open, responsible and responsive to societal needs, multiple stakeholders must be engaged at all points of the research lifecycle; from conception of a novel research project, through funding selection and resourcing, to dissemination of research findings and use of those findings within society, which in turn informs future funding calls.

All of ORION’s partners and several associated partners will be involved in the design and implementation of the co-creation experiments, trialling new methods for embedding Open Science and RRI principles in research and funding organisations.

Funding initiative: ORION Citizen Science Call The H2020 ORION project has opened a call for grant proposals on citizen science to support research activities in life sciences and biomedicine that enable scientists and citizens to work together with the ultimate goal to generate new scientific knowledge, using collectively their expertise,...
