How are you performing research on Citizen Science, taking part in Citizen Science activities and/or supporting Citizen Science?: 
As a researcher I look at processes of involvement, collaboration or co-creation of knowledge; Citizen Science, seen as a creative and innovative phenomenon, has a central place in such processes. Additionally, I run a network on Citizen Science and Crowdsourcing at the University of Edinburgh (http://citsci.ed.ac.uk/), whose objectives are, amongst others, to raise awareness of CS, to further good practice among CS practitioners, to discuss, analyse and research CS as a multifaceted phenomenon. The network has been running since 2015, and it has operated through events, seminars and workshops on a wide range of themes and scope from biodiversity through psychology to social history. Most participants come from a university background though the network has also engaged with museums, environmental NGOs and community-development projects.
