This project contributes to the introduction of responsible research and innovation related to neuro-enhancement, aiming at the definition of a normative framework based on a wide consultation of citizens and stakeholders.
This project is based on Ocean Literacy, an initiative developed by several North American scientific and education organisations. This initative defined seven main principles for the scientific culture of the ocean to be included in the curricula at all school levels.
Ciência Viva, in collaboration with a team of researchers in Marine Sciences and Education Sciences, coordinated the adaptation of Ocean Literacy to the Portuguese context.
Beginning: March 2011 | Provision of Resources and Instruments
The project promotes the interaction between researchers, policy makers and the public on matters related to maritime resources, sustainable development and the socioeconomic value and impacts of maritime activities.
Comprising 20 organisations from 11 European countries, the project will mobilise and engage researchers, companies, science centres, non-governmental organisations and citizens in a process of mutual learning, dialogue and joint action around key issues like biodiversity, pollution, coastal management or tourism.
The results of the project will contribute to the definition of European public policies for the sector. Ciência Viva coordinates the implementation of mobilisation activities in Portugal.
(Platform of Local Authorities and Communicators Engaged in Science)
This European project aims at defining the concept of a European City of Scientific Culture, as well as improve 3-way communication between science, policy makers and society.
Together with Lisbon Municipality, Ciência Viva created a Local Action Plan to implement the concept of Scientific Entrepreneurship and to show that research can translate into new opportunities for business.
The project has a duration of 4 years, but its specific activities will most likely be sustainable in the long term.
