Citizen science (CS) as a research methodology is experiencing an increase in the number of actors, projects, initiatives, and funding opportunities. Despite such growth, most of the Research Performing and Funding Organisations (RPFOs) in Europe still do not support CS implementation by fostering institutional transformations.
INCENTIVE explores the Institutional Changes needed to support and embed CS in RPFOs across Europe. To that end, the project delivers a series of webinars, some of them jointly with sister project TIME4CS, focusing on CS fundamentals, concrete activities, and real-life cases. The aim of the series is to cover a wide range of topics related to the institutionalisation of CS as a new research methodology in Europe and to spark similar initiatives at the local level.
