The ECS Co-Design Process
Welcome to the ECS Co-Design Process. As an integral part of the eu-citizen.science community, you have a unique opportunity to influence the future of our platform. Through this process, we seek to incorporate your ideas, needs, and visions to build a platform that truly empowers and supports citizen science initiatives across Europe.
Engaging in the ECS Co-Design Process offers you several advantages:
Play a direct role in shaping the features and services of the eu-citizen.science platform, ensuring that they cater to the genuine needs of the community.
Connect with like-minded individuals, share ideas, receive feedback and foster potential collaborations within the citizen science community.
Enhance your understanding of platform design and development processes, gaining insights that can benefit your own projects and initiatives.
Your involvement is pivotal in two key stages of the design process, you can choose one or both of them!
Participatory Service Selection
The first phase is the Participatory Service Selection. In this stage, you are invited to contribute your opinions and preferences regarding which services and features should be developed as a priority on the platform. This is a collaborative process that involves evaluating and discussing various service proposals. Your role will be crucial in identifying the most pressing needs and the most effective solutions. The feedback you provide will help set the priorities for the next phase of the platform's development.
Duration: 90 minutes
Co-Design of the Selected Services
The second phase is the Co-Design Process of the Selected Services. Once the priority services and features have been identified, this phase focuses on the detailed development and planning of their implementation. Here, you will work hand in hand with other participants and the development team to shape the selected services. You will be asked to share your ideas, expertise, and technical knowledge to co-create innovative and effective solutions.
Duration: 90 minutes
