Enhancing the Responsible and Sustainable Expansion of the Science Shop Ecosystem in Europe

Stakeholder survey findings

Over 600 individuals from 34 countries responded to a web-based survey, conducted by the Horizon 2020 SciShops project in December 2017 to shed light on the awareness, experience and opinion about community-based participatory research in general, and science shops in particular. Respondents included community organisations, researchers and policy makers.

The survey found that awareness of Science Shops and community-based participatory research is much higher in Western Europe, than in other parts of Europe. Researchers are more likely to be familiar with these concepts that community organisations, the main beneficiaries too.
