Call for Citizen Science Ambassadors – 2nd round
What is the Call for citizen science (CS) Ambassadors about?
We want to create a network of 28 Citizen Science Ambassadors (EU-27 + the UK) to support the activities in the ECS (European Citizen Science) project, raise awareness about citizen science and spread and strengthen citizen science in Europe. The ECS project has already engaged 23 CS Ambassadors (see here). With this call the project is looking to expand the network to these five countries: Austria, Estonia, Germany, Slovakia, and Sweden. The open call is to select Citizen Science Ambassadors that will act as the local representative and promoter of citizen science and the ECS project in the respective country.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for people with different profiles and expertise to become part of the network: citizen science practitioners, project coordinators, researchers, policy-makers, etc. with expertise in citizen science, public engagement, participatory research, open science, and/or other related fields. It is important that candidates are well-connected as part of local/national networks relevant to citizen science.
What do you get from being a CS Ambassador?
You get the unique opportunity to be part of a growing network with many additional opportunities that come with this: peer-learning, visibility, training and capacity-building opportunities, involvement in ECS events, access to project insights. You will get to contribute to widening citizen science in Europe as part of the network. CS Ambassadors will also receive a payment of 2.000 € (brute, i.e. including VAT) for the activities carried out.
