Q: What is "Science in Society"?
A: The Theme ‘Science in society’ is part of the "Capacities" Specific Programme. It 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 EU Member States have earmarked a total of € 330 million for funding this theme over the duration of FP7.
