Project Title

Expertise offered in RRI-focused public engagement, 4 Helix-based


Fundació Catalana per a la Recerca i la Innovació, FCRi, leads multiple initiatives for communicating with and
educating the public, especially school-aged children. Its Science in the Classroom Programme aims to have a
major impact on the way science and technology is perceived and taught in primary and secondary schools. Its
activities are developed in collaboration with the Catalan Ministry for Education; Barcelona City Council; and,
the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology - FECYT

The foundation counts on major university and leading engineering, health and ICT-based companies support, as
well as public education support all across Catalunya. Leading initiatives include its workshops based on school
experimentation and the young science parliament, which include a transversal, strong gender-based focus on
girls in STEM and women in research.

As a 4 Helix Hub, FCRi is ideally suited to contribute significant inputs via pilots or cases, as well as support the
wider communication of science and technology and social impact value to 4-Helix stakeholders. FCRi can
generate significant volumes of science/lay community participation and can capture stakeholder engagement in
support of achieving impacts expected.
