Our
members

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 organizations 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!
