Explore the resources developed or suggested by the OIS Center
Our resources are developed to support researchers to involve citizens and stakeholders in their research activities, with the aim to improve the novelty and efficiency of research, and unfold its societal impact.
We offer a broad range of resources, from literature to learn more about OIS, to practical tools and guides you can apply to your research project.
All our resources are free to use and share and all our publications are open access.
Contact us if you have questions or comments about our resources, or need support to involve stakeholders in your research or unfold its societal impact, or need a partner to implement collaborative practices in your project. Check out also our Support Services!
