Challenging Futures of Science in Society: Emerging Trends and Cutting-edge Issues


This report is the first step of a  mechanism for Monitoring Activities of Science in Society in Europe (MASIS). It represents a collective overview on emerging trends and cross-cutting issues in Science in Society, making it a potentially valuable tool for researchers and for decision-makers who strive for excellence and relevance. It is forward-looking into a number of challenging futures and develops the hypothesis of a European Model of Science in Society which needs further discussion.
