Assessing Science Communication in the European Union’s High-Risk Research Ecosystem

This FETFX recommendation paper discusses the practices relating to Horizon 2020 Future Emerging Technologies (FET) and European Innovation Council (EIC) Pathfinder Pilot communication on high-risk, high-gain research from the perspectives of the research and innovation community, science communicators and policy advisers. It includes an overview of obstacles and constraints, and suggestions for communicating the EIC Pathfinder and its breakthrough innovations. It further provides recommendations for European Commission (EC) services and the European Innovation Council and SME Executive Agency (EISMEA) surrounding the launch of the EIC, and for supporting the effective communication of the EIC and its main instruments to the community at large.
