The last round of the NEWSERA #CitSciComm Labs is coming up! The Italian iteration of Round 3 will take place on October 21 in Bologna, at the formicablu office in the very heart of the city.

The Lab will be held in a 1-day session, face to face, from 10 AM to 5 PM.

It will be divided into 3 sections:

  • Section 1: The NEWSERA pilots will showcase their best practices, as well as strengths and weaknesses, barriers and needs, resources needs, and sustainability. They will share their main outputs, outcomes and impact. 
  • Section 2: This part of the Lab will be dedicated to drafting the NEWSERA Communication Blueprints, guidelines for more effective science communication strategies in citizen science projects. Projects will work with with representatives from quadruple-helix stakeholders and science communicators to find a common ground on recommendations on how to tackle the barriers found. They will work on issues such as: How can we strengthen the links with each stakeholder group? How can we overcome barriers and build bridges? Which policies or institutional structures should we support (or even try to change) to increase the work of CS projects with each stakeholder group?
  • Section 3: The last section of the Lab will be dedicated to informal networking among participants.

The Lab will be open only to NEWSERA Pilot projects.
