The Platform for Sharing, Initiating, and Learning Citizen Science in Europe

Deliverables

Evaluation & Impact Framework

This deliverable describes the evaluation and impact assessment framework, including the foreseen methods and tools to assess the various project activities. It will also include a set of potential indicators and report on the first evaluation activities. Finally, the report will include a matching of the project indicators with relevant MORRI and SDG indicators.

Guidelines and recommendations based on a range of best practices for achieving societal and policy-maker engagement

These guidelines will explain the processes of (1) implementing the EU-Citizen.Science framework through already ongoing local activities and events and (2) achieving societal and policy-maker engagement within this framework. These guidelines will also provide instructions on how to start a new citizen science initiative and will be made available on the project platform.

Multi-level platform Engagement & Community Building Plan

Based on the stakeholder analysis, this Deliverable will focus on how to best address the interests and needs of the stakeholders involved, how to plan ‘user journeys’ mapped for UI design considerations, and how to set up an effective community building plan for the platform management.

Platform Functionality Requirements & Specifications Report

This Deliverable describes the outcomes of the needs-gathering exercise, therefore identifying the platform features and functionality required by future end users.

Report on training needs

This deliverable is based on Task 5.1, and identifies what are the training needs that were identified through the literature and through the stakeholders analysis in Task 2.2. The analysis will review the outcomes from previous studies about the learning in citizen science projects and the necessary training to support it.

Stakeholders, Network & Community Mapping Report

Stakeholder mapping of the key actors and interested parties whose support and involvement will ensure the success of the platform, based on a systematic review of individuals and organisations who take part in citizen science activities.

Report on policy-maker engagement and awareness-raising activities

Policy-makers will be engaged in activities at events co-organised by the project partners and through the global portal. This will be expected to result in increased awareness and understanding from citizens, policy makers, commercial companies and not for profit – philanthropic organisations. Existing citizen-science networks and projects’ events will be used as awareness-raising multipliers. On an annual basis, at M12, M24 and M36, the report will be updated to include information (title, date, location, content) on significant events (conferences, seminars, workshops) which will be organised by EU-Citizen.Science.

Framework report, describing criteria and rationale for sharing and selecting state of the art Citizen Science TGMs

This report will provide criteria and actions for defining and sharing of state of the art TGMs in citizen science in Europe. A draft version will be ready by M9, to be shared and discussed with partners at the first project meeting (M9). The final version will be concluded by M12 and it will include feedback collected during the first project meeting.

Data Management Plan

The Data Management Plan (DMP) will include data collection, data access and policies, data preservation and curation. Compliance with Regulation (EU)2016/679 on personal data will also be guaranteed, together with national laws.
