Co-design, co-creation, citizen science, open innovation: some of the buzzwords you might have been hearing a lot recently. But what exactly are they all about? These approaches can be used to achieve societal engagement in science & innovation policies or processes. In this session, we will share practical examples, and interesting (and available) tools, but also reflections on how to adapt them to emerging trends such as the need to achieve concrete targets and missions in a relatively short time (i.e. climate neutrality). We will then look at specific cases of getting innovators, regional governments, or huge private companies on board in impactful participatory science engagement activities.
