What is Citizen Science?

Citizen science actively involves the public in the process of scientific research. Researchers and citizen scientists work together to answer scientific questions to generate new knowledge or understanding, with benefits for both research and society, while stimulating collaboration, awareness and mutual understanding. 

  • Citizen science does not just engage citizens with science, it also gives them an active role in academic research, which can contribute to mutual trust and understanding.
  • It can be a great opportunity to test new technologies or innovations on a larger scale, or an efficient way to collect and process data.
