Make research more responsible to societies' needs

I am participating in the Social Lab Health of the EU NewHoRRIzon project. A first workshop took place in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, in June, and the second one in Milano, Italy, in November 2018. The aim is to develop ways how research (research policy, agenda setting, researchers) and society as a whole and stakeholder groups (users of research, patients etc.) can interact more efficiently in order to make research more responsive to the needs of these groups and its results more useful. We are testing our ideas in small projects.

This work is voluntary. Inspiration by Dante (see picture), italian design following Leonardo da Vinci in Milano, and interesting participants are compensation enough.
