A poster about the study of motivation of citizen scientists participating to the TESS photometer network has been accepted at the European Citizen Science Association Conference (ECSA) 2020.

The poster is about the study of motivation of citizen scientists participating to the TESS Network initiative (https://tess.stars4all.eu/), a citizen science community focused on fighting light pollution. This campaign aims at collecting sky brightness measurements by asking people to host and install photometers in their home. Data has been collected by hundreds of photometers installed by citizen scientists spread all around the world. The study has been conducted by three partners of the ACTION team: Cefriel, Universidad Polit├ęcnica de Madrid and Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

The conference will be held online from the 6th to 10th September 2020.
