In the framework of its enlargement and integration action, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) is organising this training, in collaboration with the Ministry of Civil Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
This training course responds to a concrete lack of genuine and legitimate places whereby institutions can explore insights, expectations and imaginaries of citizens in matters of concern to all. It is concerned with the science for policy realm where engagement of citizens is needed and relevant to ensure quality of policy formulation processes. It will look into participatory approaches to discuss science and technology developments as well as discuss what makes trustful relationships between the scientific community and the public trustworthy.
In a nutshell, this training offers a hands-on reflection on the theoretical and regulatory basis as well as methods of citizen engagement. It aims any practitioners that works at the interface of science, society and policy.
