Call for proposals : Science avec et pour la société – Recherches participatives

The "Recherches participatives 1/ Participatory Research 1") call for proposals is part of the multi-annual SAPS programme (Sciences with and for society) which the ANR launched in 2021 with the ambition of amplifying the interactions between the academic sphere and the general public. The aim is to support and contribute to structuring "participatory science and research", a movement in which civil society stakeholders engage with researchers, individually or collectively, in producing knowledge that can be used for action and can play a substantial transformative role.

The "Recherches participatives 1/ Participatory Research 1" call for proposals aims to support the development of projects carried out by collectives associating academic and non-academic actors around a scientific question of societal importance (the collective must be already constituted and have experience of working together). The call is open to all academic disciplines and all scientific questions related to societal issues and targeted towards the search for solutions. The maximum funding per project is 250 k€ over up to two years. A second call ("Recherches Participatives 2"), aimed at supporting the maturation of emerging projects, will be opened in autumn 2022.

Through these two calls, the ANR intends to promote synergies between researchers and civil society and to encourage the co-construction, co-production, sharing and valorisation of original and robust scientific knowledge, with a measurable impact on society, at any scale.
