You might have heard about it, there is a new online platform dedicated to citizen science: EU-Citizen.Science. Launched in Spring 2020, it provides useful services to a very broad community of users. Whether you are a citizen looking for support to find out more about the air quality in your community, a citizen science professional looking for inspiring practices, or a civil servant curious about why some countries are suddenly investing budget in supporting it, that’s where you can find what you are looking for. Funded by the EC, EU-Citizen.Science provides high-quality resources, training and networking opportunities.
