NEWSERA #CITSCICOMM LAB

Policy makers

Lab description

Citizen science projects can be a useful a tool to gather data for policy makers. For instance, policy makers could use CS data to monitor critical issues (such as environment pollution), and identify emerging ones. This has also the potential to create a meaningful connection between the policy makers and the community. In this Lab, participants will study new ways to use citizen science as a guide for evidence-based policies and as an interface between science, society and policy.
