The UK contribution in this area is Sciencewise, which is described as follows:

"Open science and technology policymaking. The UK is identifying innovative and effective ways to engage the public in policy involving complex scientific and technological innovation through its Sciencewise Program, which covers a broad range of scientific issues — from nanotechnology to climate change. The program aims to open public dialogue to wider scientific and civil society voices using digital tools."
