The European Commission has published a call for proposals in the area of 'governance, scientific advice, outreach and communication' under the Sixth Framework Programme's 'science and society' activity. This is one of the areas covered by the 'Structuring the European Research Area' specific programme.

The aim of the science and society programme is to help develop an environment in which both policy makers and citizens are equipped to make informed choices from the ever growing range of options thrown up by scientific and technological progress, by seeking both a better integration of science in society and society in science.

- communicating European science (subject 4.3.6.1 (a) of the work programme);
