An event for individuals and organizations that are looking into the opportunities under Horizon Europe - €100 billion research and innovation programme succeeding Horizon 2020.
Discover our methodology for citizens engagement
“Citizen participation” has become an important keyword in funded EU research. This trend signals a growing awareness, in funding institutions, that expert judgment might suffer from biases and blind spots, and that collective intelligence might mitigate them. It also highlights that the broad societal transformations that Europe needs (the “twin transformations”, green and digital) will fail, unless they can count on a broad constituency of supporters.
We agree. After all, we are Edgeryders, and in collective intelligence we trust. We have developed what we believe to be a unique approach to “reading” participatory contexts, from online fora to town hall meetings, from political debate to stakeholder dialogue. It combines ethnography and network science; it has the openness of the first, the exactitude of the second, and the sheer beauty of network visualizations. We call it Semantic Social Network Analysis: SSNA. We have been working with it for nine years, project after project. With each iteration, it got better: it gained things like ethnographic coding practices, techniques for online engagement, analysis software, and publications.
In this webinar, we present this method with a view to using it in upcoming Horizon Europe calls. We hope to receive feedback and suggestions for further improvements, and would love to discuss with you possible future partnerships.
Join us if:
- you are building a consortium for a Horizon Europe call and you need a partner that can help you build a strong “citizen engagement and social innovation” workpackage, or
- you are simply curious about our methodology and the Research Network unit.
