There is general increase on demand for research to be useful. This is more pronounced in the European funding than in traditional academic research. This paper problematizes and discusses the ways critical research can respond to these demands. The tendency is towards both specific calls driven by policy goals; and more diverse demands to formulate and communicate relevant knowledge to various stakeholders. There is a tension between unfettered critical research and the urgent contemporary quest for instrumental knowledge that needs to be respected; but also bridged. The positive dimension of EU:s call for research to be useful is accepting the need to share arguments; to stimulate dialogue; but the goal is not to produce consent but rather to trigger further investigation and disclosure of hitherto unknown or unobserved realms of culture.
