About this Event

We are delighted to announce that ECSA and EU-Citizen.Science are co-hosting a webinar about the recently published ‘Characteristics of citizen science. This document is the output of a community-based effort to outline what can be characterized as citizen science.

Led by members of the working group that wrote this document, the webinar will be an opportunity to learn more about its content, why defining characteristics of citizen science was necessary, and how it will benefit the field. Join us to find out more about this new resource and to ask the authors about it.

The event is free to attend and once you register you will get the link to the seminar room which will be held on Zoom. Registration will close 5 minutes after the start of the webinar and will be closed for access 10 minutes after the start.

We will use the hashtag #CitSciWebinar to tweet about the webinar, before and during the event. We hope you will too!
