Citizen Science

Citizen Science broadly refers to scientific projects that actively include non-scientists in different stages of research work. It is a way of collaborating between professional scientists and the general public or interested individuals. This cooperation enables researchers to, for instance, gather large-scale or hidden data, yet it also has an educational value – increasing knowledge and scientific interest among participants, improving their skills like responsibility, critical thinking, and problem-solving

The term Citizen Science may also be understood as the participation of professionals with tertiary education, from other disciplines in the projects that are predominantly led by natural scientists or researchers from biomedicine (as in the case of Covid-19). This describes interdisciplinary hybrid type of research where interested individuals from different backgrounds, expertise and experience, including researchers and scientists, collaborate on accomplishing a common goal.
