Participation formats

▶️ Series: What does the social science team at IREES actually do? 4️⃣ Participation formats: Bringing together a large number of different stakeholders with different interests, opinions and perspectives – the right formats are helpful for this!

Participation concepts are strategies that actively involve different stakeholders in the planning, decision-making and implementation processes of a wide range of projects. This involvement is key to success, as it can strengthen (social) acceptance and support for planned projects.

To this end, we use information and discussion events, expert forums and citizen dialogues, as well as surveys, online platforms and focus groups. The results of these participation formats can be disseminated accordingly as part of a communication concept.
