InSPIRES webinar: A Framework for Science Shop Processes

InSPIRES Webinar: A Framework for Science Shop Processes: results of a modified Delphi study – 15th January, 15:30-16:30h CET

Speaker: Eduardo Urias, Assistant Professor at the Athena Institute (VU University Amsterdam), who focuses his research on public engagement approaches to research and education such as community service learning (CSL) and science shops, especially on the associated organisational aspects required to institutionalise them. 

In this webinar, Eduardo Urias will present a framework for science shop processes developed within the InSPIRES project on how science shops can serve as models to translate RRI, participatory research and open science policies into practice.

He will present its key elements, its evolution from the initial approach (from a pure university-based model to a process-based framework of science shops work), and how it can serve as an inspiration to transform current science shops into platforms for piloting and diffusing best practices in RRI and open science.

Through bridging different scientific and social knowledge, science shops can improve the effectiveness, quality, acceptance, impact and sustainability of solutions for complex societal problems and become RRI best-practices for approaches of co-creation, anticipation, reflection and deliberation in science with and for society.
