Citizens Science: involvement of citizens in co-creating science agenda

May 4, 2021 8:00:00



About the Event

Citizen science is a broad term, covering that part of Open Science in which citizens can participate in the scientific research process in different possible ways: as observers, as funders, in identifying images or analysing data, or providing data themselves. This allows for the democratisation of science, and is also linked to stakeholders' engagement and public participation.

Citizens science and involvement of the citizens in the science and innovation projects allows for greater integration and delivers impact.
