Session 2 - Citizen Science and Public Engagement

Nowadays funding agencies often require a public engagement component in project proposals. At European Union level, in 2015 Commissioner Moedas identified three strategic priorities, described in Open innovation, Open science, Open to the world (the 3Os strategy). One important dimension of open science is citizen science, which is envisioned as "linked with outreach activities, science education or various forms of public engagement with science as a way to promote Responsible Research and Innovation".
Therefore we organize for the second time the "Citizen Science and Public Engagement" session at the European Space Weather Week. We welcome examples of existing project involving citizen involvement, in space weather or other scientific fields, but also best practices.
