It was summer 2021 and our team was on Zoom. This time we were working with Ecsite and the EU-Citizen.Science project to help develop the programme and facilitate the citizen science clinic, a workroom dedicated to the impacts of citizen science.

Participants had the chance to learn from citizen science experts from around the world and work on real case studies. Through a series of structured exercises and interactions with peers, they reflected on strategies to guarantee impact in their citizen science project.

The three sessions included a mix of formats, keynotes, inspirational cases, hands-on workshops to address the implementation of impact assessment frameworks, good practices, and financial sustainability strategies. Here is a detailed account of events with videos of keynote speakers.

“It is inspiring to contribute to a scientific research environment that remains anchored in the realities and interests of a variety of individuals. Collaborating with the public takes your scientific knowledge off the beaten track and challenges you to take a creative approach to your scientific practice. Go ahead: once you try participatory research, you won’t look back!”

At Stickydot, Florence provides support on citizen science and public engagement projects. Florence has been applying participatory approaches in the fields of environment and public health for over five years. She cares deeply about making every step of a scientific research project inclusive, creative and sustainable.
