University approaches to Citizen Science in the transition to Open Science - Institutional opportunities and challenges for creating an open and inclusive environment for Research

EUA and OpenAIRE organized a two-day, online workshop "University approaches to Citizen Science in the transition to Open Science" on December 9th and 10th. It provided a place to discuss Citizen Science (CS) in an era of Open Science (OS) and showcased a range of Citizen Science  projects combining the two movements.
