IDC is an independent non-profit research association, gathering 14 members from a wide range of scientific disciplines. IDC is engaged in research focused on sustainable development, biodiversity, new, emerging and converging technologies, and related social change, societal risks and conflicts. Methodological approaches and activities include inter- and trans-disciplinary research, science communication, knowledge transfer and multi-stakeholder dialogue. IDC is structured in different working groups and connected to different international networks and individual experts and researchers.

Role in the project and previous experience:
IDC will be mainly active in WP5. It will also participate in WP2 and WP3 and participate in project dissemination activities (WP6). IDC has been involved, as coordinator and partner, in several FP6 and FP7 projects, notably in the thematic areas of Environment, KBBE and NEST. The project will benefit from IDC’s experience from previous FP projects, notably from SUSTAINERGYNET, a coordination and support action (CSA), on civil society organization involvement in research on sustainable energy development. IDC’s participation will moreover build on its expertise and know-how in the field of dissemination and science communication through publications, public events and audio-visual material.
