Ecsite Open letter to R&I Commissioner C. Moedas

Ecsite sent this Open Letter to European Commissioner for Research and Innovation, Carlos Moedas, in July 2019, as part of the discussion on the strategic plan of the 2021-2027 European Union Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe. More about the context here.

The Open letter was endorsed by 135 organisations and networks from 28 European and associated countries.

In this Open Letter, Ecsite and the signatories urge the European Commission to meaningfully engage with citizen and be more ambitious on science engagement. To do so, the Commission should rely on cost-effective actions led by experienced and committed science centres and museums and other science engagement organisations, all over Europe.

What are we asking?

We suggest three communication objectives that would maximise Horizon Europe‘s relevance and impact:

  1. Enhance European citizens’ scientific culture
  2. Involve stakeholders and citizens in R&I priority setting
  3. Make the topics of the Missions the talk of Europe
