The main mission of the CS Track project has been to observe and analyse the phenomena of citizen science using empirical and theoretical studies. Based on these studies, the team has designed a set of policy recommendations. Further specific policy recommendations have also been prepared with the stated purpose of directing attention to questions related to Citizen Science that need attention.

On the 25th of January, an online webinar was held by the CS Track project team, which presented the recommendations that they have prepared in the framework of the project, and discussed their impact on Citizen Science policy from different perspectives. All these resources have now become available to the public, even if you missed the webinar. You can follow the project to know more about these recommendations, how were they created, and what kind of future for Citizen Science they direct us towards.
