OIS Support Services
We develop and offer support services to involve societal stakeholders in scientific research for the purpose of unfolding the impact of research
We support (academic and non-academic) researchers to involve citizens and stakeholders in their research activities, to generate novel research questions and methods, generate innovation and unfold the societal impact of research.
In order to achieve this, we provide funding, consultation and capability building, as well as resources to co-produce socially robust knowledge with citizens and stakeholders in a responsive and responsible way.
