Involving society and its citizens in research helps to maximise the impact of new knowledge and improve understanding of the scientific process. But how do you engage and collaborate with citizens in your own work and research projects? What are the drivers, benefits and challenges and how do you ensure that you involve all relevant parties?

In this workshop, you will learn about how to engage different types of stakeholders, what citizen science is and how it can strengthen your project proposals for Horizon Europe as well as other international and national research and innovation programmes.
