By all accounts, public engagement is a core issue in the implementation of CCS demonstrations. This was Recognized Early on and some programs nationally committed CCS studies in this field to be prepared when the moment of implementation would arrive. 

Now that the first demonstrations of reasonable scale are starting up, the unfolding of reality shows us that public engagement is indeed a crucial issue. Much more than before, the field is being observed by CCS independent people from outside and by the media. In many cases, these observations are made from a greater distance and with more detachment. Thus these observations concern the real interaction occurring between the different stakeholders - the process. 


Purpose of the workshop.

  • To review studies and investigations in the fields of social awareness, public acceptance, etc. that were carried out in the preceding period
