Centro de Investigação e Intervenção Social (CIS) will play a lead role in the research activities of WP6 - Development of common approaches and tools for optimal food risk/benefit communication in Europe - and will be involved in the research activities of WP3 and WP5 with particular involvement in the tasks relating to deliberative engagement using the EnGauge tool.

CIS – Centro de Investigação e Intervenção Social (Social Intervention and Research Centre) is a non-profit research centre that develops research, research-based intervention and scientific training in psychology, focusing on social and organizational psychology within the framework of the social sciences. Founded in 1989, CIS has now 57 members researchers (51 PhD eligible for FCT – Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology). It is recognized by FCT as a Unit of R&D, and has the status of an associated research unit of the Lisbon University Institute – ISCTE. CIS is closely linked to the Department of Social and Organizational Psychology of ISCTE, and its Laboratory of Social and Organizational Psychology (LAPSO).

CIS research engages in (a) the empirically-based development of theories and models and (b) the application of such theories to the analysis and solution of social, political and economic problems of Portuguese and European societies. This research is conducted in mainly externally funded projects and researchers are organized in research groups sharing scientific interests and backgrounds. These groups meet regularly for scientific exchange, collaboration and internal evaluation of research activities. The three research groups of CIS are: Groups, social cognition and intergroup relations (GCIR); Quality of social life: Health, environment and the community (HEC); and Work and organizational psychology (WOP-NIPO). Researchers within all of these groups collaborate regularly in their research projects with scientists from other disciplines.

CIS will play a lead role in the research activities of WP6 - Development of common approaches and tools for optimal food risk/benefit communication in Europe - and will be involved in the research activities of WP3 and WP5 with particular involvement in the tasks relating to deliberative engagement using the EnGauge tool (tasks 3.3 and 5.1). The CIS-FooRisC team is constituted by Maria Luisa Lima (PI), Beate Seibt (co-investigator), Rui Gaspar de Carvalho (Post-doctoral research associate).
