ISEED, the Inclusive Science and European Democracies project, explores how Citizen Science can help engage citizens in democratic deliberation in Europe, especially as concerns science-based topics. 

This series of policy briefs provides valuable insights into how citizen participation in democratic deliberation can be enhanced, particularly in the context of science-related issues.

By drawing on the lessons learned from Citizen Science initiatives, these briefs offer practical recommendations for policymakers and stakeholders seeking to foster meaningful engagement. 

Additionally, the briefs aim to bridge the gap between academic research and policy implementation, offering actionable steps to address the diverse needs and perspectives of citizens in the realm of science and democracy. 

The ISEED policy brief series engages with a range of issues including Science governance and valuing the roles of the public, Fostering the structure of Science Clubs as part of European education and Recognising and working with both emotions and rationality in deliberation and decision-making.
