Workshop Minutes of the WG 4 Meeting in Kaunas on the topic "Citizen Science & Social Innovations"
First Workshop in Romania, Iasi by WG 4 & WG 6 in March 2019 with the topic "Citizen Science and Gender".
The objective of the STSM was to examine the alignment of the monitoring process of the project BiblioLab - Science in Action with an open framework for evaluating citizen science activities developed by the Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI - Vienna, Austria), and to identify a set of indicators for articulating its impact assessment.
Our deliverables in WG4 – ‘Deliverable 1: Review on participants’ requirements for volunteering in CS projects (Task 1)’ and ‘Recommendations for CS project designs that address volunteer needs (Task 1)’ both with an emphasis on technologies.
As most applications currently are isolated it would be beneficial to the entire community if modular and reusable components could be created which could be used by app developers; more or less similar to a lego-like house of apps.
The overall aim of this STSM project was to create clear and publicly understandable protocols that will familiarize with the objectives of the project, its importance and enable volunteers and other public to recognize symptoms of Phytophthora diseases.
WG 5 Deliverable: Citizen Science Ontology
In this workshop, the key synergies between Citizen Science and Open Science as well as potential barriers were identified and solution for overcoming have been formulated.
At European level, the Green/White paper rolls out a strategy for a substantial increase of citizen science. In a first meeting, some kind of mapping exercise was foreseen.
