Who can participate?

This event is open and free of charge. The event is for everyone interested in citizen science, open science, public engagement, citizen science training and the EU-Citizen.Science platform.


EU-Citizen.Science contains a wide array of free, self-directed training modules on citizen science on its Moodle page. The themes of the training modules range from introduction to citizen science over research design and methods, engagement and impact to communication and regulations and ethics.

At this event, we will showcase three of these training modules and offer the opportunity to meet the trainers who developed them. We will launch the final version of the EU-Citizen.Science platform and show its new features. Finally, the winners of the #MonthOfTheProjects campaign will be presented.

The recording of the event will be made available on the ECSA YouTube channel after the event. For further information please visit the webpage of the event.
