Exploring Citizen Science: Can research and society be (re)connected?

In the last episode of this first season of Exploring Citizen Science, Alexander wraps up the content of the project. But more importantly, he tries to answer the questions he set out originally, in episode 1. So: can citizen science help restore trust in experts in our societies? What is the “responsibility” of scientists themselves in this process and does citizen science change their perspective? How can we – meaning institutions, but maybe anyone – help citizen science grow as a practice?

As part of the CNI (Coalition for Networked Information) Pre-Recorded Project Briefing series, in 14 minutes Christina Drummond (the OAEBUDT Executive Director) provided an overview of the effort’s history and future.

Listen to the Open Science Talk podcast episode featuring Pierre Mounier on “The whys and whats of OPERAS”.
