The conference, “Connect.Collaborate.Create: Bridging Communities for Participatory Research and Citizen Science 2023”, will bring together the diverse European communities that create and support participatory research (including its funding) and citizen science. Jointly organised by the European projects COESO and PRO-Ethics, it will focus on the social sciences and humanities as well as on integrating participatory approaches at the research funding stage.

On October 19-21, 2023 in Paris, at Aubervilliers, Campus Condorcet, the Conference will welcome researchers, Citizen Science practitioners, and supporters from all backgrounds, research funding organizations, ethics, and integrity experts, as well as policymakers, into a space designed for networking and mutually exploring citizen science/participatory research initiatives and services.

This conference uses the interactive model of ThatCamps and BarCamps, inviting attendees to shape the content and activities. With an emphasis on participation, attendees are encouraged to contribute through leading workshops, breakout sessions, or poster presentations. The goal is to stimulate a productive exchange of ideas that promotes the advancement of participatory research and Citizen Science.

Late registration for the Conference: here.


 The conversations we want to stimulate are clustered into six core areas:

  • Participatory research, citizen science, and open science networks and infrastructures.
  • Support services for participatory research and citizen science.
  • Methodologies for doing and teaching citizen science and ethical participatory approaches to research, including in funding agencies.
  • Data workflows and communication formats.
  • Drivers and barriers for implementing, supporting, and funding citizen science, as well as participation in the processes of funding agencies.
  • Assessing and evaluating participatory processes.


The “Connect. Collaborate. Create” conference opens these discussions to all attendees and welcomes the lively intermingling of different experiences and perspectives. Please join us if you recognize yourself in one of the following profiles:

  • Citizen Science practitioners and supporters.
  • Research Funding Organisation (RFO) members
  • Policymakers
  • Research managers
  • Research ethics committee members
  • Research integrity body members
