From 3rd to 7th May 2021, the Arqus Alliance is organizing the first Arqus Academy Week. As part of it, an open session on citizen science will bring together research staff and, more generally, the academic and global community of Arqus universities interested in Citizen Science.
The main objective of the activity “Co-creating Citizen Science” is to give visibility to projects related to values of citizen science and based on cooperation, openness and participation, in which these universities are either leading or taking part. One of the expected results is also to achieve advancements in the position paper that the Arqus Alliance is preparing on this subject.
In the first part of the programme, universities will present their institutional initiatives on citizen science. Later, brief presentations on specific projects (4-5 minutes) follows. Lastly, a living lab format will be used for group work on specific subjects of citizen science. The event will close with a sharing session.
The session will take place online on 6th May from 9 am to 1:30 pm (CEST) and is open to anyone interested. The session will be held in English.
