ECSA

The European Citizen Science Association is a network of researchers, practitioners and citizens that was originally launched by the EU Environment Commissioner at EU Green Week in 2013.  We work in Europe and beyond, with a mission to connect citizens and science, promote sustainable development through citizen science, and to support the contribution of citizen science to policy processes. We aim to empower citizens as valued actors in advancing knowledge and innovation, increase the social relevance and impact of citizen science research, and support the democratisation of science by establishing citizen science as a recognised, promoted and funded research approach.
