About FETFX project

Helping FET research and society shake their hand

FETFX, a project funded by the HORIZON 2020 FET-Open Programme will accomplish this by strengthening the involvement in the FET world of researchers, policy makers, industrial players, the media and the public. How?  Via fresh, impact-driven communication materials and engaging community-building actions.


A lot has happened since the EU-funded FET programme was launched 30 years ago. It continues to develop game changing technologies grounded on high-risk, long-term, multidisciplinary and collaborative frontier research. Many are the fields in which FET research is shaping the world, including Information and Communication Technologies, Material Sciences, Physical and Chemical Sciences, Biotechnologies and Health, and Energy and Environmental Engineering.


FETFX takes the torch from the EFFECT project to go beyond it. The mission stands clear: letting the voice of FET resonate louder than ever and reach out to the previous and new segments of society. More stories will be sought and new actions will be launched to broaden the impacts generated by EFFECT in fostering awareness, acceptance and uptake of FET research.


FETFX is managed by a consortium with a range of expertise in public science communication, research and innovation.
