Putting Open Science into action in an engineering project
Our world is changing rapidly. Addressing these enormous challenges requires new ways of performing science.
GRECO coordinator Ana Belén Cristóbal explains Citizen Science
Call for ideas:
Citizens in the driving seat on solar energy
6 pioneering photovoltaic products
As one of the core parts of the project, GRECO researchers will design six cutting-edge photovoltaic design products
6 research activities on photovoltaics
GRECO will generate six innovative solutions in the field of photovoltaic energy. To ensure its social acceptability, GRECO will adopt different quadruple helix methodologies such as Open Innovation or Mobilisation and Mutual Learning (MML). With this new approach, GRECO tackles societal challenges by tearing down the barriers between researchers, industry, government and civil society. The quadruple helix model will result in the sharing of ideas and teamwork and the research will generate benefits both for society and industry.
The multinational research project GRECO aims to make science more responsible and sustainable. To this end, GRECO will explore a full set of Open Science tools: Open Access, Open Peer-Review, Open Data, Open Education, Open Software and Open Notebooks. As a special feature, GRECO invites everybody interested in the project to contribute via Open Annotation on the website.
Scientific research often appears remote and exclusive. GRECO will encourage citizens to actively participate. Our researchers will listen to their opinions and include them in the photovoltaics research process. This will profoundly change the scientist-citizen relationship.
