Citizen Science Clinic: Impact assessment frameworks

During this second session, participants will dig into envisioning the impact their projects could make. In order to do so, they will be presented with 3 existing citizen science impact assessment frameworks that have recently been developed. Following the presentations, they will be split into groups to see how the frameworks work in practice and how they could be applied to their own citizen science projects.

Outcomes for this event:

  • Gain a better working understanding of existing impact assessment frameworks for citizen science projects
  • Understand the potential impact of citizen science projects

More detailed programme information and speaker information will follow soon!
