Citizen Science Hubs explained: needs, resources, best practices
This webinar focused on the need for one or more Citizen Science Institutional Contact Points (CS-ICPs) inside Research Performing Organisations (RPOs). This webinar was a combined effort of the TIME4CS and INCENTIVE.
Firstly, participants were provided with a detailed description of what CS-ICP is, how it should be structured, what are the resources needed, who should take care of – and work for – it. Then, they were given examples of different RPOs organisational structures and governances, which do include a CS Hubs.
In this context, and building on the mentioned examples, the two projects provided recommendations on where CS Hubs would fit best within an organisation’s organigram, best practices and operating models for established contact points to carry out their role the best way and represent an added value for the organisation as a whole.
