129. Engaging Society for Responsible Research and Innovation. Lowering Barriers, Innovating Policies and Practices

This is a PROSO Project support tool for promoting engagement of citizens and third sector actors in research and in research and innovation policy. In particular, the document identifies lowering barriers and innovating policies and practices for addressing such barriers, with different options. These are six barriers: lack of relevance; lack of impact; lack of trust and critical views of others; lack of knowledge and skills; lack of time and finances; and lack of legitimacy. Different options are provided for different actors, namely policymakers and governmental agencies, research funding organisations and research councils, public and private research organisations and (other) engagement performing organisations, and third sector actors.
