Citizen Science as the new paradigm for Science Communication

Project description

Citizen science changing science communication

Citizen science (CS) offers an important service for both science and society. Success hinges on the participation of key stakeholders (interdisciplinary scientists, public sector, industry, CS organisations and society), which is indispensable. However, there is a wide range of specific science communication instruments and strategies available for every target group, and constant feedback for each stakeholder group is required. The EU-funded NEWSERA project will analyse and evaluate the complex science communication strategies directed at the stakeholders in CS programmes all over Europe, creating a new paradigm in science communication. Four pilot case studies will be conducted under the new platform, taking into consideration the quality, quantity and reliability of science communication.
