CONSIDER. Civil Societal Organisations In Designing Research Governance

Uploaded by RRI Tools on 01 November 2015



From 31/01/2012 to 30/01/2015
CONSIDER has undertaken conceptually sound and empirically rich research regarding CSO participation in research, contrasting theoretical views on benefits and limitations with empirical findings on the practice of CSO participation. Based on a grid of analysis, the project did a survey of all FP7 research projects, and investigated more than 30 relevant projects as in-depth case studies. Using the conceptual grid of analysis and empirical data, a model of CSO participation in research was developed. The aim of the project is that this model, representing relationships and causal effects of factors influencing CSO participation, will allow for comparative analysis to determine the role CSOs play in achieving participation objectives.
