What is Citizen Science? What is not? Learn more about the characteristics of citizen science and why it is important to define them.

On May 27th, 2020, ECSA and EU-Citizen.Science co-hosted a webinar about the recently published ‘Characteristics of citizen science. This document, and the accompany notes, is the output of a community-based effort to outline what can be characterised as citizen science.

Led by members of the working group that wrote this document, the webinar is an opportunity to learn more about its content, why defining characteristics of citizen science was necessary, and how it will benefit the field.
