Citizen science case study: Bring your own device

The 2018 “Bring Your Own Device” citizen science campaign involved a Danish university, a media outlet and a life cycle company, which invited citizens to hand in their old smartphones, tablets, computers and other devices. Please bring your own devices that will become part of the workshop as a learning component.

The project’s aim was pushing scientific, institutional and media boundaries, and in this hands on-workshop we will be sharing the data, research and reach of the project. We will explore the new public engagement opportunities offered by citizen science and life cycle studies to science institutions and communication professionals and share advice for conducting similar campaigns.
