“Science with and for society” will help citizens, organisations and territories to open a new chapter of their development through joint research and innovation activities in five strategic orientations. It will contribute to the implementation of Responsible Research and Innovation through institutional governance changes in Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) and Research Funding Organisations (RFOs), focusing on developing new partnerships and involving researchers, policy makers, citizens and industry. It will step up support for gender equality in R&I policy by promoting institutional changes and focusing on key areas of research to advance gender equality. It will build on the territorial dimension of SWAFS partnerships by opening up R&I broadly to society according to specific territorial contexts, where territories are understood as geographical areas sharing common features (e.g. economic, social, cultural, environmental). It will explore and support citizen science in a broad sense, encouraging citizens and other stakeholders to participate in all stages of R&I. Finally, it will build the knowledge base for SwafS through a combination of totally bottom-up and open topics and targeted topics, including two looking for the first time at science communication and due and proportionate precaution.
