Get Inspired

Research is changing. Huge strides have been made in innovating solutions and improving services and knowledge for future generations. In addition to the benefits, research can also create new ethical dilemas, risk social non-acceptance and spur public controversy. Opening research up to societal voices can help to reduce some of these risks and lead to more relevant applications. By using more open and inclusive approaches, the distance between research and society can be reduced leading to greater impact for all stakeholders.
