Eddy Maddalena; Neal Reeves; Ilaria Baroni; Gloria Re Calegari; Annelli Janssen; Esteban Gonzalez

This deliverable updates the initial analyses conducted by the ACTION team regarding the use and effectiveness of incentives, as well as distinct motivations and motivational factors within pollution citizen science. We analysed the contributors' motivation in participating in the Citizen Science pilots of the project. We look at the contributors' expectations in their experiences and how these affect the quality of their results. Also, we explore the use of gamification to improve contributors engagement. The document then concludes with a list of guidelines derived from our studies' findings to help researchers or practitioners design future Citizen Science and crowdsourcing initiatives.
