Launch of the European Citizen Science (ECS) project!

19. September 2022by Claudia Fabo Cartas

The EU-funded project “European Citizen Science” (ECS) has started! The project, coordinated by ECSA, has a consortium of 12 partners and 9 affiliated entities and will last for four years.

ECS aims to widen and strengthen the European citizen science community through capacity-building and awareness-raising activities. Integral parts of the project will be to create a European citizen science academy, establish a network of 28 ECS Ambassadors, continue to develop the platform, support collaborative spaces towards FAIR and open developments, boost inclusion and diversity in citizen science, and engage policy makers and funding agencies among others.

The project kick-off meeting took place online at the beginning of September. We will keep you posted with news and developments! You can follow the project on Twitter @eucitsciproject!
