Project description

English EN

For a better knowledge of citizen science

The role citizen science (CS) plays in modern societies is not entirely understood even though it represents a significant bridge between the general public and the scientific community. CS is research or study conducted mainly by non-scientists while respecting scientific procedures. The EU-funded CS-Track project intends to enrich our knowledge of CS and formulate knowledge-based policy proposals aiming to enable potential benefits for citizens, organisations and society. The project will make extensive use of data from the web and social media and conduct interviews with stakeholders seeking to understand how CS interacts with society and in relation to gender, age, geographical, and social and economic differences. Final proposals intend to improve CS as a constructive factor in EU society and economy.
