Facilitated by Professor Richard Thompson OBE FRS from the Marine Institute and Dr Kayleigh Wyles from the School of Psychology, this event seeks to understand our University-wide activities and interest relating to CITIZEN SCIENCE (CS, where non-professional scientists contribute to the scientific process from data collection to developing research questions and running analysis).
Anyone with experience or have interest in using citizen science to help with their science and/or to engage different populations in the research (i.e. school groups, general public, specific stakeholder groups) are invited to join this event.
Along with colleagues from across the University this event will seek to understand:
- Exactly what are the University’s current strengths in this field?
- Where do our interests sit (a means of collecting data, of engaging citizens and knowledge exchange, understanding how participation influences behaviour etc) ?
- Who is interested in collaborating on the CS theme internally and joining a steering group?
- Where do we want to take our interests what do we anticipate might be the opportunities?
- How to move the agenda on with the resources available?
- What next?
You are welcome to contribute or observe and we look forward to a dynamic event.
The event starts at 15:00 (lasts 60-90 minutes) and will be delivered via Zoom - https://plymouth.zoom.us/j/91996566541?pwd=Y3JaRU9ueVlWN1VIdVczby9QYXhQUT09
