Public Engagement and Dialogue
To do this we organise:
Citizens Meetings - Face-to-face meetings with EU citizens where ethical, legal, cultural and societal issues related to HBP research are debated.
Online consultations - Interactive online surveys to collect public opinions on issues related to the HBP.
Stakeholder Forums - Online and physical dialogue meetings between scientists, stakeholders, experts and decision makers on ethical and societal issues related to HBP research.
HBP public engagement activities aim at addressing concerns and opinions of EU citizens about social, ethical, cultural and legal issues related to the HBP. With a stronger understanding of the perspectives of citizens, the HBP can communicate better and promote more responsible research thattakes citizens’ perspectives into account.
With regular intervals Citizens Meetings are held with EU citizens. The citizens learn about the theme for debate before they reflect on their thoughts and points of views in discussions with each other. The meetings may be visited by non-HBP experts.
HBP stakeholder engagement activities aim to provide opportunities for researchers and stakeholders to engage in critical dialogue and to explore the broader social, political, ethical and legal implications of HBP research. By inviting non-HBP experts and stakeholders, controversies may be anticipated and a better dialogue can be created.
The HBP raises controversial questions to citizens, stakeholders and experts with diverse backgrounds. The issues addressed are of immediate and future relevance for the everyday work of the HBP researchers. The themes for debate are identified and developed through the Rapporteur Network, the EAB and the PORE.
