Abstract: In the framework of its Enlargement and Integration Action, JRC is organizing in collaboration with the Ministry of Civil Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina this "Training on citizen engagement in Policy relevant Science, Technology and Innovation", in Sarajevo on 12th-13th October 2017. Creating the conditions for genuine engagement of citizens and other societal actors in matters of their concern where science and technology are relevant is an issue of increasing political attention; not least because the diffusion of “low cost” and “low tech” media through which citizens can, like never before, express opinions and concerns calls for institutional reflexivity. Public engagement is one of the pillars of the RRI lemma, together with Ethics. This training course responds to a concrete lack of genuine and legitimate places whereby institutions can explore insights, expectations and imaginaries of citizens in matters of concern to all. This training is concerned with the science for policy realm where engagement of citizens is needed and relevant to ensure quality of policy formulation processes in situations described in the framework of “post-normal science” where “facts uncertain, values in dispute, stakes high and decisions urgent". This training will look into participatory approaches to discuss science and technology developments as well as discuss what makes trustful relationships between the scientific community and the public trustworthy
