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

STRATEGY FOR PARTICIPATORY RESEARCH

The purpose of this strategy produced by the SciShops project is to provide a vision and guidance to support the future development and capacity building of Science Shops. The strategy is designed to help Science Shops engage in ‘transformative’ community-based participatory research (CBPR), i.e. implement projects on behalf and with CSOs that inspire and enable changes or result in new perspectives on the issues under investigation.

The strategy identifies concrete ways to develop Science Shops with transformative potential by describing priorities, objectives and actions for strengthening knowledge exchange between Science Shops and society, and supporting the capacity building of Science Shops.
