EUA and OpenAIRE organise a joint online workshop on Citizen Science to discuss understanding of the challenges and opportunities for universities engaging in Citizen Science, and explore how Citizen Science can benefit from and add to the transition to Open Science.

This joint workshop will discuss themes around institutional support for Citizen Science and offers an opportunity to transfer and share knowledge. The aim is to exchange experiences, lessons learnt, and explore common challenges. To support Citizen Science, the online workshop will discuss tools, guidelines and good practices from Open Science experiences as well. Participating universities will have the opportunity to share expertise, coordinate efforts and exchange advice on services, tools and legal and ethical issues.

The workshop will contribute to the following concrete outcomes:

  • Support universities in their development of institutional strategies on Citizen Science in the transition to Open Science.
  • Foster a deeper understanding of how universities can use these opportunities and address the challenges of Citizen Science as part of their mission.
  • Understand how Open Science practices and infrastructures, OpenAIRE in particular, can facilitate and support Citizen Science.
