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.
- H2020-EU.5.c. - Integrate society in science and innovation issues, policies and activities in order to integrate citizens' interests and values and to increase the quality, relevance, social acceptability and sustainability of research and innovation outcomes in various fields of activity from social innovation to areas such as biotechnology and nanotechnology
