about European Citizen Science
European Citizen Science aims to create a globally connected, inclusive and strong citizen science community for societal change in Europe.
The European Citizen Science project has the overall objective to widen and strengthen the citizen science community in Europe through capacity building and awareness raising activities, such as the creation of a European Citizen Science Academy and the establishment of a network of 28 ECS Ambassadors. It builds upon the previous EU-funded actions such as the eu-citizen.science project and Cos4Cloud and on the enormous achievements in citizen science over the past decade.
Widening and strengthening the European citizen science community through capacity building and awareness raising is the main goal of the European Citizen Science (ECS) project.
