Newsletter

CS Track newsletter – helping grow Citizen Science in Europe!

Every month we send our subscribers articles from our eMagazine as well as reports, technical notes, and the latest findings of our research team. We will also include news and reports on what other Citizen Science researchers are discovering about topics like what motivates citizen scientists? What communications structures seem to be most successful in Citizen Science projects? How best can activists measure the impact of their citizen science project? And a wealth of other responses to questions that interest anyone wishing to get the most out of Citizen Science. We will also feature specific projects as a way to shed a light on particularly successful strategies.

Help us share what we learn about Citizen Science by inviting your colleagues and co-workers to sign up to this newsletter and send us your own findings, results and recommendations about Citizen Science.
