Meet our Multi-Stakeholder Panel!

We are proud to announce that the Multi-stakeholder Panel (MSP) for ISEED – Inclusive Science and European Democracies- has been constituted in work led by UPF Barcelona. The main objective of the MSP is to advise project partners and include a diversity of perspectives (industry, academia, policy and civil society) in ISEED work.

To date, the MSP has 10 members: Antonio Florida from the Direzione Affari Legislativi, Giuridici ed Istituzionali; Rosina Malagrida from IrsiCaixa, Rosa Arias from Fundación Ibercivis, Francisco Lupiáñez from Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, Maja Lalic from Mikser , Dorte Riemenschneider from the European Citizen Science Association, Meie Van Laar from NEMO Science Museum Amsterdam, Norbert Steinhaus from the Wissenschaftsladen Bonn, Joanna Erbel from Cooptech  and Francesco Mureddu from The Lisbon Council for Economic Competitiveness and Social Renewal. We are excited to work together with our MSP to ensure ISEED reaches the publics -and counter-publics we want to include in democratic deliberation.

The Studies Center on Science, Communication and Society of the Pompeu Fabra University (CCS-UPF) is the coordinator of WP6: “From citizens and science to citizens and democracy”. WP6 is responsible for the creation of the MSP, which will advise project partners during their investigations and experimentations in order to include multi-stakeholder panel reflections, ideas, needs and suggestions to end up with more efficient proposals, to reflect on and contribute to the co-development of open access specific project outputs (e.g. Database of inspiring practices) that stimulate the integration of democratic deliberation and participation and to be involved in the policy briefing writing.

KICKing off!

Following COVID-19 restrictions, ISEED’s kickoff meeting took place online, on the 25th and 26th of February 2021. We got to connect with all ISEED partners across Europe and Latin America and start discussing how our project will proceed to learn from inclusive citizen science efforts and support European democracies.

ISEED -Inclusive Science and European Democracies joins researchers in 10 countries, Italy, France, Poland, Norway, Denmark, Ireland Spain, Bulgaria, Uruguay and the United Kingdom, for the next 3 years to abstract lessons from citizen science engagements projects in order to understand how to engage citizens in democratic deliberation.
