2015-08-26 Italy: ENGINES - Engagement and Innovative Experiences in Science


ENGINES - Engagement and Innovative Experiences in Science

Description of the project offered: 
An Italian North-west University will submit a project within Horizon H2020-ISSI-2015-1 Call for Integrating Society in Science and Innovation, Topic 1 Pan-European public outreach: exhibitions and science cafés engaging citizens in science. The project objective is to encourage and increase the participation of individuals in the debate on relevant scientific issues and to experiment innovative ways to make this participation effective, thus able to generate concrete outcomes
The project will addresses the subject “Energy and Energy mix”, that is a crucial issue for Europe (see the so-called “20-20-20 Climate and Energy Package” launched by the European Union in March 2007) and in every European citizen’s life. The project’s aims are:
- to increase the public awareness about energy consumption and energy production in Europe and worldwide, by presenting and discussing the scientific and technological state of the art on the energy issue.
- to promote activation, by stimulating reflection and proposals on how day-by-day behaviors and innovative solutions can help to reduce energy consumption or to produce new energies through existing technologies.
- to encourage participation in the development of solutions at the collective and societal level concerning the contribution of different technologies in the national and European energy mix of the next decades.
These goals will be achieved through the different activities to be organized during the project lifespan: science cafés, exhibitions and other participatory events.
Project outcomes will be new projects to be developed by the involved communities and guidelines for policy makers.
The consortium already involves Universities and Science Museums.
