This working group will focus on the outcomes of CS projects for scientists. The objective of this WG is to provide a sound understanding of current practices involving the collection, description, and validation of data gathered and analyzed by citizens.
The working group will focus on the outcomes of CS projects for policy makers at local, national, and European level concerned with policies impacting the environment and society. The objective of this WG is to make government officials and decision makers aware of CS by providing evidence and guidance material, so that they can use it as part of policy formation, implementation and evaluation.
WG4 focuses on issues that are relevant to the volunteers in citizen science. The objectives of this working group are to raise awareness of the volunteers’ aims, needs and requirements from citizen science and the results that citizen science contributions have in their lives, as well as the implications for developing social innovation interventions. Due to the complexity and the importance of this WG there are several themes that currently we use to promote collaboration, exchange and share of knowledge within this COST action.
