Citizen Science Lab, Leiden University
The Citizen Science Lab brings together researchers, citizens and societal organisations to create new knowledge for science and society. The Lab is coordinated by Leiden University (Observatory and Science Communication & Society). The Lab supports the different stakeholders with setting up a project together. At the moment we are setting up two projects, one on plastics and the other on psychology. Also we are working on the international project MONOCLE with which you can measure both air and water quality with an add-on for your smartphone. In 2018 we organised workshops on air pollution, archaeology and languages & cultures. These workshops lasted 4 to 5 days and were organised together with the Lorentz Center and other partners. We are involved in the Horizon 2020 projects SciShops and EU-Citizen.Science, and run two local projects in Leiden: Plastic Spotter, and the Psychology Lab on Wheels.
