How are you performing research on Citizen Science, taking part in Citizen Science activities and/or supporting Citizen Science?:
CAPP has already experiences in projects that include assessment by citizens and citizen participation, moreover via our research in Anthropology and Sociology. We would not refer to it as citizen science but as ‘action-research’ or collaborative fieldwork. We believe that Citizen Science developed from these traditions in which our Institute has an interest for long time for its history of research in developing countries.
Presently one of our research areas focuses on territorial policies through place-centered and people-centered research. We are experience citizen science perspectives particularly on that avenue of research. We are as well interested in communicating citizen science new proposals through conferences or even postgraduate courses.
