Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The Danish Board of Technology Foundation (DBT) has 30 years of experience in developing and implementing methods of public engagement in research and innovation. We work continuously to improve the interaction between science and society through multi-actor approaches, societal engagement, stakeholder engagement, citizens’ dialogue, policy dialogues and more. We pioneered the ground-breaking methods such as the consensus conference, the citizens’ summit, the future panel, and the World Wide Views method. We are proud to say that we have helped decision-makers in all corners of Europe to balance opportunities against risk and values against interests in the interfaces between science and society. We do our work in fields as diverse as ICT development, cognitive science, climate change adaptation, biodiversity governance, pandemics response governance, and more.
When we participate in Horizon 2020 projects, we deliver:
•Public engagement and citizen participation
We design and facilitate engagement processes – upstream, downstream and in-between – for all types of research and innovation
We provide processes and platforms to connect research and innovation projects with potential users and concerned parties to maximize impact and to avoid unintended consequences.
•Strategies for Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI)
We design and implement RRI strategies for research and innovation projects at all scales – from small collaborative projects to flagship initiatives.
•Research and evaluation
We study and evaluate new and emerging approaches to public engagement, stakeholder dialogue, science-in-society policy and governance of research and innovation.
•Training and tools
We provide training and tool-boxes for public engagement in science and RRI for both young and senior researchers, innovators, administrators, funders and others.
We continuously develop and implement new digital tools to support public engagement and citizen participation.
