The Odour Observatory challenges the impact measurement of Citizen Science approaches

In a recent blog post, the Odour Observatory challenges the impact measurement of citizen science approaches. In this post, the authors argue that while independent reports advocate for the many benefits of citizen-lead approaches, there is a need to reassess the data used in such reports. They contend that it is often the case that available data is not representative for society as a whole or for the different scientific fields. In this post, the authors share some on-going initiatives that aim to tackle this issue. The Odour Observatory has been built within the D-Noses European H2020 project which brings together partners from across Europe and beyond to kickstart a much-needed collaborative journey to tackle the problem of odours at a global scale.
