Claudia Göbel proposes a framework of examination for how Citizen Science and other types of participatory research should form a more prominent part of the much needed cultural change in knowledge institutions. This is to complement the many reforms already underway in other areas of Open Science & Scholarship.
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.
The EU-Citizen.Science project will establish a community hub for high quality citizen science exchange and learning in order to consolidate and centralise the citizen science knowledge base in Europe. For more information about the project please read the information in the Annex.
