Citizens expressed in the study of Soler and Flecha (2022) that participating in the evaluation of scientific evidence had a direct impact on changing their lives and practices, motivating them to analyze evidence for possible transformations and to incorporate key findings into different areas of their daily lives in every aspect. The researchers interviewed in this study expressed that the inclusion of citizens in the evaluation of the social impact of research makes them reconfigure their way of doing the research.  In this vein, we can see the essential of citizens’ engagement in the evaluation of the social impact of research.  The concept of co-creation refers to the participation of citizens, including those from vulnerable groups, in the creation of scientific knowledge together with those who work professionally on a task (Torras-Gómez et al, 2019). An egalitarian dialogue and the abolition of interpretive hierarchies are conditions for the co-creation of knowledge (Gómez et al, 2019).
