Organized by: Fonds de recherche du Québec, Fanny Magini

Canadian granting agencies are increasingly interested in strengthening the link between science and society. This link can take various forms, including that of participatory science, in which non-expert citizens are involved in the research process. The Chief Scientist of Québec would like to organize a panel to discuss the role of granting agencies in the funding of participatory science in Canada and the role of citizens in the research process. Panelists will answer questions such as: Do granting agencies already support this type of research? Are there specific research programs to promote and recognize participatory science? Beyond research programming, should citizens have a place on evaluation committees, boards of directors of granting agencies, or other official bodies?
