ECSA draws on a wide and diverse network of members and supporters from Europe and internationally. They represent a mixture of research institutes, museums, universities, NGO’s, SMEs and other local and national Citizen Science groups that cover different fields, such as biological science, do-it-yourself approaches, environmental mapping and social sciences. The community is bound together by a strong committment to advance participatory research, either by conducting citizen science projects or by supporting them through activities like communication or funding.

ECSA strives to act as a catalyst for the citizen science community in Europe and foster international cooperation.
