Youth | Science | Society

The participants of the Western Balkans Vienna Summit 2015 clearly recognized that improving the perspective of young generations is of “paramount importance in ensuring stability, sustainable development and progress of the region”. They also welcomed "the proposal to make civil society an additional important element of the Berlin Process". Both, youth and society can also be considered of utmost relevance for the region when it comes to improving the framework conditions for research and innovation.

The organisations from the Western Balkans are also well adviced to consider the participation in one of the current open calls within the  Horizon  2020  Specific  Programme -  'Science  with  and  for Society' (SWAFS). The aim of the programme is "to build effective cooperation between science and society,  to  recruit  new  talent  for  science  and  to  pair  scientific  excellence  with  social awareness and responsibility". In this context, you will find below an information on some recent related developments in form of news, events, organisations as well as selected open calls.

Youth | Science | Society was in focus of the newsletter in May 2016. Related article is available here. Please find below also a selection of the topic related articles.
