SWAFS report and more details:

"The objective of this report is to convey the achievements of SwafSin Horizon 2020 to serve as input for DG Research and Innovation to integrate society and citizens in science under Horizon Europe, both across the future Framework Programme and in the first work programmes falling under the 'Strengthening the European Research Area' part.

The report commences with an outline of the methodological aspects of the analysis (the frame for the analysis, data sources, the analytical approach and its limitations)followed by nine thematic chapters. The first of these presents an overview of SwafS implementation in Horizon 2020 in terms of both the evaluation process and project implementation. In the eight following chapters, for each thematic domain, the policy objectives and achievements are analysed and recommendations for the future Framework Programme are conveyed. The final chapter presents concluding remarks as a complement to the highlights outlined in the executive summary.

At the time of writing this report, the COVID-19 pandemic, came to the fore with Member States going into lockdown, resulting in citizens across the EU being obliged to stay at home. There was an imminent need for effective online tools and many SwafS projects adopted contingency measures notably moving from physical to an online format for project activities in order to sustain the bridge between science and society."
