The school takes impulse from the CoAct project experiences and partners. It aims to invigorate the academic community around a wide set of Citizen Social Science practices while providing a critical view on their strengths and challenges.
School participants will have the opportunity to discuss, identify and develop skills to conduct a Citizen Social Science project. The school will explore aspects and dimensions to be considered and will provide tools and resources. It will introduce participants to visions, disciplines and methods helping to enhance the social dimension in Citizen Science set of practices.
The school is addressed to researchers who want to learn how Citizen Social Science can be realised. Early-career researchers are highly welcome, as are any other researcher since the school aims to be inclusive in all terms. The school also seeks for diversity of profiles, perspectives, and scientific disciplines among participants to enable a mutual learning environment.
The school is a formal education activity officially recognized by the Universitat de Barcelona.
