Sharing, Initiating, and Learning Citizen Science in Europe

EU-Citizen.Science is an online platform and mutual learning space for sharing useful tools & guidelides, best practice examples and practical training modules for anyone involved or interested in citizen science -from volunteers and participantes, to scientific institutions and policymakers.

The project

The three-year EU-Citizen.Science project is funded by the EC’s Horizon 2020 programme ‘Science with and for Society’. It is our aim to enable and accelerate the mainstreaming of citizen science in Europe by creating a central hub for knowledge sharing, coordination, and action at the regional, national and international levels.


We are coordinating actions and leveraging resources for citizen science to cross-fertilise knowledge and increase impact.


We are engaging with all actors involved in citizen science to leverage experience and skills, and improve uptake.


We are creating a mutual learning space and hub for citizen science to share knowledge and know-how across the whole community.
