Shaking up science & society relations: policy recommendations from the Sparks project

Policy recommendations from the Sparks Project - Shaking up science and society relations

This document puts forth five key policy recommendations from the Sparks project. European, national and regional policymakers are invited to reflect on how they can be integrated into policy and implemented on the ground. The recommendations were drafted by the Sparks consortium and validated by 150 participants of the project's final Forum.

Sparks is an awareness-raising project that shows Europeans from all walks of life that they can get involved in science and that various stakeholders share the responsibility for research and innovation. Taking place across 29 European countries, Sparks
bridges the gap between the super-fast pace of scientific innovation and society through a unique touring exhibition and over 230 participatory activities.
