Be part of our study into citizen science!

We have launched our first major international study into citizen science and need your help in encouraging as many people as possible to complete it.

The purpose of this survey is to find out about people’s experiences in citizen science projects and activities regardless of their level of participation or the topic of the project. We want to understand how people participate, as well as what they learn and how competent they feel about doing science as a result of their experience. We would also like to know if they use technology to support their participation, and if so, how is it used? 

Take the survey

Help CS Track to develop its research. You can answer the survey in English, Deutch, Español, Français, Nederlands, Svenska, Suomi, Greek, Hebrew and ٱلْعَرَبِيَّة.

The results of this survey will contribute to an overview of the current state of citizen science in Europe and beyond, as well as providing a basis upon which to formulate recommendations and best practice manuals for citizen science project leaders and stakeholders. Through this effort, the survey will help maximize the benefit of citizen science for you and other citizen scientists, organisations and society as a whole.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and is available in English, German, Spanish, French, Dutch, Swedish, Finnish, Greek and Hebrew. We plan to publish our first results by summer 2021 which we will share with the wider stakeholder community.  

So spread the word amongst your networks and let’s gather as many responses as we can. If you would like to contact us about this survey, or indeed, if you have any questions or suggestions about our work in this area, please contact the team at University of Jyväskylä (Finland) at cs-track [at] jyu.fi
