Mobilise and involve citizens


Investing in research and
innovation is crucial for shaping our future and improving the lives
of our citizens. We recommend that citizens
be much more involved in the next European programme
for research and innovation. Citizens should have a say
in defining the missions the future European research and
innovation programme will address. Citizens should play a key
role in determining which innovative solutions
they need and want. Innovations in Europe should be
much more user-driven. Europe needs to
encourage citizens-science, whereby citizens become
providers and users of data. Open access to publications
and data is crucial. This should enable citizens to
participate in evidence-based policy and decision making.
