Project deliverable Open Access
Fraisl, Dilek; Gold, Margaret
The aim of the EU-Citizen.Science project is to build a sustainable platform as a mutual learning space for citizen science in Europe through an inclusive and transparent approach. To achieve this aim, the project supports the development of a framework to identify, collect and share good quality citizen science resources and best practices. This deliverable (D3.3) “Review of Framework Implementation” provides a review report on the implementation of the “Quality Criteria Framework for Resources” in practice, as developed in D3.1 “Framework describing criteria and rationale for sharing and selecting state of the art citizen science resources”, which described the set of criteria and actions for identifying good quality citizen science resources for the EU-Citizen.Science platform. The Quality Criteria Framework, which has been implemented for more than a year, is designed as an inclusive exercise that actively involves the community in decision-making. The framework ensures that a living and sustainable repository for high quality citizen science resources is made available on the platform for the community. After a careful review of the implementation of the criteria framework for resources, the EU-Citizen.Science consortium has come to the conclusion that the criteria and their moderation will continue to be implemented by ECSA, who will take ownership of the platform after the end of the EU-Citizen.Science project.
