External Advisory Board

What is it

The CS Track External Advisory Board is made up of external experts from institutions involved in Citizen Science activities as well as informal and lifelong science learning, industry, education, research, NGOs, and the public sector.

What it does

The task of the external advisory board is to advise on different aspects of our work including our research and analytical activities, the tools and resources we are developing to provide insight into the nature, value and orientation of Citizen Science and, most especially, the extent to which the project can have a significant impact in keeping with its mission and values.


The External Advisory Board meets twice a year and provides valuable and critical input to the project in both formal and informal settings.
