    Abstract

    This chapter aims to introduce the policy perspective of the relevant European funding stream, tracing the evolution of the science with and for society call from the first Framework Programme through to Horizon 2020. It also introduces the Pupil Research Initiative (PRI) and how the Chain Reaction project built upon PRI's legacy, using its successes to inform a project that was relevant across Europe. The chapter highlights the key aspects of the chain reaction project, for example the Pupil Research Briefs (PRBs) and Express Yourself Conferences, and how these were adapted, and in the case of the PRBs, expanded upon to be more relevant to different partner contexts and the needs of their education systems and curricula.
