CIVITAS invites you to join its online training session on 2 September, 09:00 – 12:30 CEST, to learn about the miracles of traffic counting and citizen engagement. Sign up here.
In recent years, citizen science has been on the rise: volunteers are assisting scientific research by collecting data, carrying out measurements, and conducting tests. Indeed, more and more local authorities are actively working with their residents on research projects. Involving residents is not just a cost-effective way to collect data, but it also increases public support. Residents not only gain insight into the data they collect, but also feel more involved.
However, there are still many challenges, especially when the citizen science project uses a technical tool or when the data are linked to a complex context. How do you make sure your citizen science project reaches everyone? How do you make sure everyone understands the context of your research project's data? How do you make sure that the people involved stay motivated? How do you turn the citizens engaging in citizen science research into scientists?
