As part of NEWSERA, we are launching a survey about communication in citizen science projects. It’s addressed to those responsible for citizen science projects based in the European Union and the United Kingdom: if you fit this description, we would like to hear about your experience!

Completing the survey will give you the opportunity to participate, expenses covered, to our #CitSciComm Labs together with science communication experts and journalists. The Labs will consist in small group meetings, aimed at better understanding and improving science communication through a mutual learning process.

If you are interested in following the future outcomes of the project or to be included in the labs, please leave us your email address in the last part of the survey. Even if you are not interested in follow-ups, we will treasure your answers: all the information we gather will be useful to demonstrate the potential of citizen science as a science communication tool.

This survey will help us to understand better the current environment of citizen science projects in the EU and UK. We are particularly interested in the ways the projects use to communicate and engage with their community. This is a crucial aspect that we think plays an important role in making projects successful. And it’s interesting to us, because one of the main ideas behind NEWSERA is to find innovative and effective strategies for science communication in citizen science projects. Studying the state of the art is the first step to build something new.

We developed this survey as a group effort, but with the prominent contribution of Università degli Studi di Padova (UNIPD). The data we gather will be managed by UNIPD itself and by Ibercivis: you can read more about our privacy policy below.
