Are you leading or taking part in a citizen science initiative? Then participate in the activity “Co-creating Citizen Science”!

The Arqus Alliance is organizing on 6th May the open session “Co-creating Citizen Science”, which will bring together research staff and, more generally, the academic and global community of Arqus universities interested in Citizen Science.

The main objective of the activity “Co-creating Citizen Science” is to give visibility to projects related to values of citizen science and based on cooperation, openness and participation, in which these universities are either leading or taking part. One of the expected results is also to achieve advancements in the position paper that the Arqus Alliance is preparing on this subject.

The session will take place online on 6th May from 9 am to 1:30 pm (CEST). It is open to anyone interested and will be based on a participative approach. The working language will be English.

In the first part of the programme, universities will present their institutional initiatives on citizen science. After that, there will be brief presentations on specific projects (4-5 minutes) and thirdly, a living lab format will be used for group work on specific subjects of citizen science. The event will close with a sharing session.
