Citizen science to inspire educators – The importance of metadata and open data

Event date
June 14, 2022
Short description

This online workshop on Tuesday, 14 June 2022, 14:00 – 15:30 CET focuses on how data in citizen science projects is collected, shared and how it can be used in other contexts such as formal education.


Social media and online platforms are used by citizen science projects to share information about their work, how to participate, and motivate citizens to join them but also as a research tool. CS Track is exploring how communication is done and what type of information is shared. In this workshop, the project wants to share insights on this and also explain how this data can be used in other contexts such as formal education. Furthermore, we would like to know more about your experience with metadata, metadata standards, and your ideas on how this data can also be used for other purposes.

Project initiators and coordinators, CS platform managers
