Developing metrics and instruments to evaluate citizen science impacts on the environment and society

Project description

Measuring the impact of citizen science

The EU-funded MICS project is developing a platform of tools to measure costs and benefits of citizen science. The impacts of citizen science are being measured on the following domains: (1) Society: impact on society and individuals as well as collective values and understanding; (2) Economy: implications for entrepreneurial activity, and economic benefits derived from data, e.g. for the public good; (3) Environment: impact on the bio-chemical-physical environment, e.g. on the quality or quantity of specific natural resources or ecosystems; (4) Science: impact on the scientific process as well as research more broadly, and the scientific system; (5) Governance: impact on the processes and institutions through which decisions are made.
