In June and July 2021, Ecsite and the EU-Citizen.Science project organised a 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 other participants, 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.

Each week, a plenary session has been broadcasted on YouTube to be accessible to the whole community:

Day 1: Inspiring stories

Keynote from Anne Bowser, Director of Innovation at the Wilson Center, Washington, DC


Day 2: Impact assessment frameworks

Panel of different impact assessment frameworks

 

Day 3: Financial sustainability
