Citizens in medicineScenario workshops

The workshop combines expert consultations and preparing a scenario of ready-to-implement solutions. Key topic: open access to medical data. The participants of the workshop are experts from different areas, including researchers, health care workers and policy makers.

The ideal effect of the workshop would be a real implementation of a chosen scenario. However, the actual outcome will fully depend on the will, determination and capabilities of the participants.

This is a closed workshop, the result of which will be presented to a wider audience of the Przemiany Festival during a meeting on 4 September.

The workshop is a part of the SPARKS European project, together with the “Citizens in medicine” exhibition, which will be shown at the Copernicus Science Centre between 14 July and 11 September.


01 – 11 September 9.00 a.m.– 7.00 p.m.
Copernicus Science Centre, 1st floor
Admission is included in the ticket to the Copernicus Science Centre

More about exhibition »

“Citizens in medicine” is an exhibition which reveals how science can develop outside research laboratories. It presents seven stories of extraordinary people, who have taken the matter of their health into their own hands – both as patients and involved citizens.

The exhibition is part of the SPARKS European project, which popularises social involvement in innovation and scientific research (Responsible Research and Innovation). The idea of SPARKS (is implemented in the form of exhibitions, science cafés and workshops) involves 28 European initiatives focused on science communication.
