Citizen Science for Policy across Europe
EU-Citizen.Science invited representatives from ministries across Europe and at the regional and local levels to engage in a discussion about citizen science and its benefits for policy making. The main aim of this event was to develop collaborations among policy makers with citizen science interests. This event focuses on 4 main topics regarding citizen science and policy: (1) Current state of citizen science across Europe, (2) Promoting citizen science through the launch of national plans for funding citizen science projects, (3) Overcoming the barriers to citizen science and (4) Policy instruments to anchor citizen science in research and society. Each block began with a presentation given by an invited speaker (5'), followed by an open discussion for sharing different experiences from representatives of Ministries of European Member States and the participants in the event (15'). The event was held as a satellite event of the European Research and Innovation Days on 22 June 2021.
