More about the National Meeting of Citizen Science 2021

Science and innovation are essential to finding solutions to the urgent challenges facing contemporary society. But for this to happen in a relevant and effective way, it is essential to meet the needs, values ​​and aspirations of citizens. In this sense, citizen science constitutes a powerful tool to democratize and build trust in science, boosting the opening of the research and innovation system to the participation and collective thinking of society, while enhancing the interest and involvement of citizens/ aces in science.

The National Meeting of Citizen Science 2021 (ENCC 2021) therefore intends to build bridges to a shared science.

ENCC 2021 will focus on sharing and discussing challenges and good practices that lead to a more effective involvement of citizens, businesses, industry, policy makers and the public sector, in research and innovation processes, through citizen science.
