What is Citizen Science?

Citizen science (CS) – broadly defined as ‘voluntary participation of the public in the scientific process’ and currently launched by the European Commission (EC) as an open science priority – holds great potential for contributing to new knowledge and innovations, helping create more inclusive societies for young people by supporting science–society collaboration and the active engagement of citizens in research and innovation.

Yet CS is less developed in the social sciences, and evidence of the actual outcomes of CS in social science research is still scant.
