The relationship between the Responsible Research & Innovation approach and that of Citizen Science was the focus of the webinar jointly organized, on March 28, 2022, by the ResBios and Step Change projects. The issues discussed were how these approaches intertwine, how can the practices inspired by them improve research in the field of biosciences and what is the added value of engaging citizens in this specific disciplinary research field. The following took part: René von Schomberg (the Kate Hamburger Kolleg); Daniele Mezzana (project manager at ResBios Coordination team − University of Rome Tor Vergata); Buzan (ResBios Project and StepChange Project, University of Primorska); Carolina Doran (European Citizen Science Association). Annette Klinkert, Executive Director at the European Science Engagement Association, moderated the discussion.
