JRC report on Citizen Science Strategies and Initiatives in Europe published

A technical report was recently published by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission’s science and knowledge service, on Citizen Science Strategies and Initiatives in Europe. This report provides a synthetic summary of the findings stemming from three years of pan-European discussions and a survey on Citizen Science strategies and initiatives. The ultimate objective of this work was to understand the landscape of such initiatives, and whether these have developed as institutional, spontaneous, or commissioned by a given community. To this purpose four workshops have been organised and a survey was launched in 2019. This work helped to identify actors involved, methodologies and tools applied, their underlying dynamics, influencing factors and possible avenues to promote and further develop Citizen Science approaches in support to policy making – both, at country and at European level.
