Citizen Science Ambassadors of the ECS project

Citizen Science Ambassadors of the ECS project

The ECS (European Citizen Science) project aims to create a network of 28 Citizen Science Ambassadors (EU-27 + the UK) to support the activities in the project, raise awareness about citizen science and spread and strengthen citizen science in Europe. All Citizen Science Ambassadors have been selected through an open call.
