Launch of MOSAIC and ENJOI

Launch of MOSAIC and ENJOI

We are happy to announce the launch of our two very first Horizon 2020 research projects that both started in January 2021. 
Launch of MOSAIC and ENJOI - Stickydot


20 January 2021


MOSAIC is our first European project as coordinators. It exploring different ways to co-create innovation processes to tackle Mission cities challenges across Europe. MOSAIC aims to find the best ways to make the active participation of multiple stakeholders possible when addressing mission-like objectives. The project will highlight how co-creation can make goals like 100 climate-neutral cities possible through a more inclusive process that better addresses societal needs.

At the core of the MOSAIC project is the concept of Open Innovation, where the contributions of citizens, scientists, entrepreneurs and policymakers are fairly valued as they collaborate to build sustainable futures. Over three years, MOSAIC will develop an Open Innovation methodology through an extensive review of past and ongoing co-creation experiences – particularly those generated through the European Commission’s Science with and for Society funding programme. MOSAIC will test its approach in pilot actions in two European cities involved in the Cities Mission. The methodology will then be enhanced through replication activities in cities across Europe.


ENJOI, coordinated by formicablu in Intaly, aims to co-create indicators to assess what makes great science communication. It will explore and test engagement as a key asset of innovation in science communication distributed via media platforms, with a strong focus on journalism. Through a combination of methodologies and in collaboration with producers, target users and stakeholders of science communication, ENJOI will co-create and select a set of standards, principles and indicators (SPIs) condensed to a Manifesto for an Outstanding Open Science Communication.

“It is inspiring to contribute to a scientific research environment that remains anchored in the realities and interests of a variety of individuals. Collaborating with the public takes your scientific knowledge off the beaten track and challenges you to take a creative approach to your scientific practice. Go ahead: once you try participatory research, you won’t look back!”

At Stickydot, Florence provides support on citizen science and public engagement projects. Florence has been applying participatory approaches in the fields of environment and public health for over five years. She cares deeply about making every step of a scientific research project inclusive, creative and sustainable.
