Citizen Science: data and service infrastructure meeting

Jan 26 2016

JRC-Ispra, 26 – 27 January 2016

On 26 and 27 January 2016, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission invited international experts for a two-day workshop in Ispra (Italy) in order to discuss data and service infrastructures for Citizen Science. The participants were challenged to

  • identify the major requirements for Citizen Science project repositories and their relation to existing Citizen Science platforms; 
  • draft a reference model for analysing and sharing Citizen Science tools and data – with first examples;
  • define a high-level roadmap with checkpoints for synchronising already ongoing activities.

The event followed the 2014 JRC-workshop on Citizen Science and Smart Cities (report available here), and the Citizen Science Data and Service Infrastructures Workshop that the JRC co-organised together with the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) at the end of October 2015 (more details here).
