ORION – Open Responsible research and Innovation to further Outstanding kNowledge
Horizon 2020 R&I programme, grant agreement Nº 741527.
4 years (May 2017 – May 2021)
Orion has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Science with and for Society (SWAFS) Work Programme. The main aim of the SWAFS Programme is to build effective cooperation between science and society. Open science is a core strategy of the European Commission that involves widening participation and collaboration as well as sharing research processes and outcomes to improve research and innovation.
Orion will explore ways in which research and funding organizations in life sciences and biomedicine can open up the way they fund, organize and do research. The project aims to trigger evidence-based institutional, cultural and behavioural changes in Research Funding and Performing Organizations (RFPOs), targeting researchers, management staff and high-level leadership.
One of the objectives of Open Science is aligned with the processes and results of research and innovation with the values, needs and expectations of society. In this process, public involvement is an essential strategy for research to enrich the voice of those who are not scientists. ANT has been chosen as a partner of excellence to ensure and facilitate the involvement of citizens in research processes, in particular cancer patients and their families, as well as health care professionals
