JRC-Geel is organising the 7th Project Advisory Committee meeting of the EUFRAT Transnational Access project on July 6, 2017.

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.”
