Citizen science is defined as organised research where the balance between scientific, educational, societal and policy goals varies across projects. It is a growing worldwide phenomenon recently invigorated by evolving new technologies that connect people easily and effectively with the scientific community. New technology provides a valuable tool for citizens to play a more active role in sustainable development. Through collaboration with scientists in organised research projects citizens can contribute valuable information that can be used to develop and deliver policies, improve understanding and respond to many of the challenges facing society today. ECSA is an association supported by organisations from over 17 EU and other countries. Find a list of our full members and our partners in the broader ECSA network
