Citizen science may cover a variety of scientific activities, one of them being the upstream setting of R&I agenda. Pilots have been launched at European level, e.g. with the VOICES and CIMULACT projects. The NewHoRRIzon project is now working on social labs in order to produce R&I narratives. Do you happen to know other examples at national and regional levels where citizens are invited to set R&I agenda that are subsequently taken up by researchers or by citizen science projects?

The Participatory Budgeting Portugal (OPP, see https://opp.gov.pt/files/opp/downloads/ParticipatoryBudgetingPortugal.pdf) includes a call for science. Its first edition is now complete. 8 science projects were approved; the projects will now be executed by/with researchers and other partners. Bear in mind though that in OPP “science” also means science communication, technological development, etc. Two of the winning projects can be considered “citizen science”: “Fogo Frio” (Cold Fire) is based on participatory research on traditional and local methods to fight forest fires; “A Minha Praia” (My beach) will invite schools for monitoring and mapping waste in beaches; students will also collect plastic waste and recycle it in the school.

The selection of 10 experts in the impact of R&I is ongoing but once the Regional Forum on Research and Innovation - promoted by @LombardiaInnova - starts its work, it will promote RRI experiences in the region with active citizens engagement. Stay tuned! #RRI #OpenInnovation

Dear Philippe,

nice to hearing from you.

From the Living Lab for Health we are working in the definition of a R&I Agenda on the prevention of HIV and other ITSs.The project is called Co-ResponsHIVility. We are setting this agenda with the collaboration of more than 660 citizens, which include different stakeholders within the context of two EC funded projects: EnRRICH and InSPIRES.. We are planning to have it finished by the end of 2017. More information available in this page:

It would be interesting to hear about other methodologies,

Your best,

Rosina Malagrida

Not easy. But we're trying. At our platform http://KnowledgeWorthy.org  citizens rate research abstracts post-publication, in a fun engaging way. We can parse ratings data according to user type. Researchers need to respect citizen ratings before they will adjust research agendas!
