Maremma Natural History Museum
Among the precursors of citizen science in Italy, since 2011 the Maremma Natural History Museum has activated CS initiatives and established close contacts with the European community of practitioner and institutions in this sector. It is one of the founding members of the European Citizen Science Association and its Director sits in the Board of the association since 2014. This constantly growing network places the museum in a dynamic context of exchanges, that brought it to co-manage the Italian informal group on Citizen Science (CSI) and set up the first on-line repository of CS projects in Italy (https://www.museonaturalemaremma.it/csi). It promotes several Citizen Science initiatives at the local, national and international level.
