Presentation of CIMULACT project in Zagreb

On November 30, 2017, a workshop and a presentation of the CIMULACT project was held. With 60 associates and colleagues we discussed about a desirable future. The CIMULACT project (Citizen and Multi-Actor Consultation on Horizon 2020) is funded by the European Union's program Horizon 2020. ODRAZ is one of the 30 partners involved in the implementation and is responsible for the implementation of activities in Croatia.

ODRAZ Director Lidija Pavić-Rogošić presented CIMULACT, a project based on the conviction of collective intelligence as a strength for achieving Europe's competitiveness. By establishing a dialogue between citizens, interest groups, scientists and policy makers, discussions and desirable future scenarios are being discussed and developed, which will be translated into recommendations and proposals for research and innovation topics and policies.

60 associates and colleagues were divided into five groups and talked about the future they want for 30 to 40 years. In short lines we bring together the common desires of each of the groups:

Eat healthy and natural - dignity, self-esteem, compassion, peace, security, tolerance, communion, love, understanding

Reduction of environmental pollution, cleaner air, renewable energy sources in constant use, organic farming, farm return to peasants, medical achievements and innovations, treatment of malignant diseases available to everyone, shorter working hours, no unemployment

Educated, active and aware citizens; tolerant society, equal opportunities; socially sensitive society, technologically advanced, sustainable, circular economy, preserved environment, natural and technological resources available to everyone

Sustainable and satisfied society - new technologies, a new concept of life and habits > a good balance between technology and nature

Technology, Nature and Society - Nature is an indispensable element of quality life. Along with the development of technology that primarily facilitates life, the greatest challenge is the preservation of nature and society; sharing economy; socializing with family and friends is a source of happiness and inspiration in overcoming everyday challenges; greater awareness of the importance of local food and active consumption of local food, ecological and less processed
