 i-CONSENT falls under the ‘Science with and for Society’ (SWAFS) programme, which means that finding ways of connecting science to society is one of its main goals. Well aware of this, i-CONSENT is committed to citizens’ health literacy not only as a solution to make science more attractive to them but also as a way of empowering them leading to a true autonomy and self-government when deciding to participate in health-related studies.
