  "abstract": "<p>The vision for the EU-Citizen.Science platform is to aid in the mainstreaming of citizen science, by&nbsp;building a sustainable platform as a learning space for citizen science in Europe for researchers,&nbsp;citizen science practitioners, policy makers, journalists, citizen scientists and other stakeholder&nbsp;groups. To achieve this aim, the project supports the development of ~20 training modules on a&nbsp;wide variety of CS-related subjects, aimed at this range of stakeholder groups. This Deliverable&nbsp;presents 24 training modules, 17 of which are from various Consortium partners and not the&nbsp;promised 3 but 10 modules developed by Cascading Grants awardees, drawing on the expertise&nbsp;from 10 institutions or individuals outside the Consortium. We describe the Moodle platform and&nbsp;the structure and topics of these training modules, the training and evaluation processes used in&nbsp;creating them, and the protocol created for future users of the platform who may&nbsp;choose to create their own training modules during the years 2022-2027. We also report how we&nbsp;built on our earlier work identifying specific training gaps in the field of CS, using a survey and a&nbsp;workshop to select the topics of the modules and widening the scope of topics and available&nbsp;languages with the call for Cascading Grants. Finally, this Deliverable concludes with somerecommendations for maintaining the sustainability of this platform, highlights potential topics for&nbsp;further training modules to be written in the future and provides some recommendations based on&nbsp;lessons learned for other CS Projects who may wish to provide CS training in the future.</p>",
