Data Management in Citizen Science Projects: share your experience

The ‘Citizen Science and Smart City Summit’, organised by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in 2014, highlighted issues regarding the sustainability and interoperability of data collected by citizens, which hindered the re-usability and integration of these data across borders. The JRC is following up on these findings with a detailed study of interoperability arrangements, hosting and data management practices of Citizen Science projects, with a particular emphasis on environmental topics such as air quality, noise and biodiversity. These activities include a survey designed to capture the state of play with regard to data management practices on the local, national and continental scales.
Beyond the aims of pure stocktaking and awareness raising, this survey should establish a baseline for prioritising subsequent actions and for measuring progress. The results will also inform the discussion on the potential roles of the European Commission – and especially the JRC – in Citizen Science.
In agreement with the European Environment Agency (EEA), the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) and the international Citizen Science Association (CSA), it was decided to open the scope of the survey to the international community, so that non-EU and globally acting organisations could also benefit from the results.
The survey will be open until 31 August 2015, and the results of the subsequent analysis will be available by the end of September.  We invite all those involved in Citizen Science projects to take the survey in order to provide us with invaluable information and insight into Citizen Science projects and best practice.

Take the survey!
