Science with and for Society programme in Horizon 2020

The Science with and for Society programme aims to stimulate a harmonious integration of scientific and technological endeavour and associated research policies in European society. It will encourage Europe wide reflection and debate on science and technology and their relation with society and culture. This action line is based on the rationale that the ability of European societies to develop themselves in a positive and sustainable way depends, to a large extent, on their capacity to create and exploit knowledge and to innovate.

The 2018-2020 work programme for Science with and for Society will be implemented through the following five strategic orientations:

  • Accelerating and catalysing processes of institutional change;
  • Stepping up support to gender equality in research and innovation policy; 
  • Building the territorial dimension of SwafS partnerships; 
  • Exploring and suporting citizen science;
  • Building the knowledge base for Science with and for Society.
