Over the past two decades we have been witnessing in the European context a growing concern about how societal actors might perceive research and innovation and the degree to which they support both. This has come hand in hand with a rising call for researchers themselves to become more responsive (and thus responsible) towards society and engage in a more direct manner with citizens, their concerns, values and knowledges – i.e. we could describe this as a call for researchers to develop a stronger sense of “academic citizenship.”
