Members are central to ECSA’s mission and activities. Since being founded by citizen science practitioners and researchers in 2014, our members have shaped who we are and what we do. And we are always happy to welcome new ones!
ECSA will co-host a workshop in Berlin next March, with the title ‘Creating a citizens’ information pack on ethical and legal issues around ICTs: what should be included?’. The purpose of this event is to collect ideas from citizens and citizen scientists about the major problems they face in this field, and what is needed to overcome these.
Changes to the EU’s regulations regarding ICT-based research and innovation are creating a new scenario, one to which stakeholders, policymakers and citizens must adapt – and as quickly as possible. This is likely to be challenging, however. Enter PANELFIT. This project – ‘Participatory Approaches to a New Ethical and Legal Framework for ICT’ – will help different stakeholders adapt to and understand these new regulations.
