ACTION
aims to transform

ACTION transforms the way we do citizen science today:
from a predominantly scientist-led process to a more participatory, inclusive, citizen-led one, which acknowledges the diversity of the citizen science landscape and the different, evolving challenges citizen science teams must meet as their project develops. By bringing together and considering the needs of multiple stakeholders throughout the entire lifecycle of citizen science, we create methodologies, tools and guidelines that will democratise the scientific process, allowing anyone to design and realise a citizen science project, from the early stages of project ideation to validating and publishing the results and beyond.

toolkit

Co-designed methodologies and socio-technical tools simplifying the everyday life of CS projects and supporting their sustainability.

accelerator

A set of services, tailored to the needs of each CS project, including:training, mentoring, infrastructure to host projects and their data; promotion and networking.

masterclasses

Tailored events for local, national and EU policy makers and civil servants interested in maximizing the potentialities of CS in their territories.

opencall

Funds and support for 10 new and ongoing citizen science projects related to any form of pollution in Europe and worldwide.
