MICS’s focus in the last few months has been on developing a framework for measuring the impact of citizen science. A report detailing impact-assessment methods adapted to citizen science will be available on the MICS website in April.
MICS has also been working to establish three case-study sites through a co-design methodology; in particular, GEONARDO and AAWA hosted workshops for key stakeholders in order to develop the local activities in Budapest, Hungary and Noale, Italy, respectively.
Finally, MICS had a very successful project team meeting in January, hosted by the River Restoration Centre at Cranfield University, UK, to plan for the next phase of the project and meet some of the UK case-study participants from the Outfall Safari project.
