Share, initiate and learn about citizen science in Europe

The EU-Citizen.Science project is building the central platform for citizen science in Europe. It will be a place to share useful resources about citizen science, including tools and guidelines, best practices and training modules. This will make citizen science knowledge created in Europe accessible to all and enable people to initiate their own activities. It will also enable anyone involved with or interested in citizen science to learn more and get involved.

About the project

The EU-Citizen.Science project is supporting the development of citizen science across Europe by creating a central platform for sharing knowledge, initiating action and supporting mutual learning. In doing so, our core activities are to:


The project will coordinate citizen science actions in Europe to share and cross-fertilise knowledge.


The project will engage with stakeholders to ensure that the platform and its content meet their needs.


The project will create and populate this online platform, which will be developed over three years (2019-21).
