CIMULACT (Citizen and Multi-Actor Consultation on Horizon 2020) is a Horizon 2020 funded project which aims to engage citizens in the future of health technologies. The CIMULACT project has as a main objective to add to the relevance and accountability of European research and innovation, by engaging citizens and stakeholders in co-creation of research agendas based on real and validated societal visions, needs and demands. By establishing genuine dialogue between citizens, scientists, and policymakers, visions and scenarios for desirable futures will be developed and debated, and transformed into recommendations and suggestions for research and innovation policies and topics. This includes the delivery of policy options for research and innovation (R&I) and simulated calls for the Horizon2020 Work Programmes.
As part of the CIMULACT project the HISRC has undertaken the following research activities: (1) the hosting of the Irish National Citizen Visions (NCV) workshop, (2) the organisation of the second Research and Policy Consultation, and (3) publications.
