What exactly is Citizen Science?

ECSA and EU.citizen-science have launched the “ECSA Characteristics of Citizen Science” – a foundation document to define the parameters of activities that can be called Citizen Science. This document aimed at providing some set criteria for citizen science, whose boundaries are context-dependent. Still, some consensus is needed, especially when it comes to policy-making, and calls for funding. The project behind the document created a ‘vignette survey’ where participants were asked to quantify the extent to which some activities were considered to be citizen science. The first outcome of the survey is the Characteristics of Citizen Science document, published along with explanatory notes. The paper including the project methodologies and results will also be published.
