Members are at the heart of ECSA. Among other roles, they participate in ECSA working groups and shape the association’s future at our general assemblies. They share a strong commitment to advancing citizen science, either by conducting citizen science projects or by supporting them through research, communication and funding.

ECSA has a diverse network of members, both organisations and individuals, from Europe and beyond. They represent research institutes, museums, students and universities, NGOs and CSOs, the private sector and citizen science groups, among others. They come from a range of different fields, including biology, environmental science, citizens’ groups, do-it-yourself approaches and social sciences, among many others.

We are always open to new members, from any country and subject area. All you need is an interest in citizen science!

Membership is available for a yearly membership fee (organisational or individual) and brings many benefits.

For example, you can:

  • share your news and events through our website and newsletter
  • access our members-only email list, which provides early notices of jobs, funding opportunities, project requests, etc.
  • participate in and vote at our Annual General Meeting
  • stand as a candidate for our board
  • participate in ECSA working groups
  • contribute to ECSA’s open-access documents and publications, such as policy papers and guidelines
  • receive invitations to join European citizen science projects
  • add your logo to the ECSA website (organisations) or your name (individuals).


ECSA membership is valid for one calendar year, and we will send you an invoice at the start of each year.
