The Open Schools for Open Societies project is featured in two reports of the Horizon 2020 Science with and for Society (SwafS) project.
Research and innovation are essential to finding solutions to the pressing challenges we face. It requires opening up the research and innovation system to the participation and collective intelligence of society, embedding high integrity and ethics standards, raising interest in science, and supporting Europe’s brightest minds engage in scientific careers. Put simply, Europe cannot thrive without ensuring the best possible match between the immense potential achievements science has to offer and the needs, values and aspirations of citizens.
The objective of the “Science Education: Achievements in Horizon 2020 and recommendations on the way forward” and the “Science with and for Society in Horizon 2020 Achievements and Recommendations for Horizon Europe” reports is to convey the achievements of the science education projects funded under the Science with and for Society (SwafS) part of Horizon 2020. Its purpose is to serve as input for the preparation of the Horizon Europe programme implementation.
