Opening research to society in Horizon Europe. How to set up citizen science projects?
Open Science is a core strategy of the European Commission that involves widening participation and collaboration as well as sharing research processes and outcomes to improve research and innovation. The collaborative and inclusive characteristics of Open Science allow all social actors to engage in scientific processes, including through citizen and participatory science. This webinar provided with an overview of citizen science as part of the Open Science strategy and presented how citizen science projects are set up within that framework. Participants had the opportunity to interact with speakers and get first hand information on how to effectively integrate citizen science in research methodology and what aspects to take into account in the proposal development.
