e-Research South organised a workshop on Citizen Science at the Royal Society, London, last 13th September 2013. It features speakers from projects such as Galaxy Zoo and ClimatePrediction.net, and participation of Socientize in a speak presented by Eduardo Lostal.
The aims of the workshop were to identify how we can best create the Citizen Science projects of the future, and how we can utilise more effectively those we already have, about five topics: What makes a successful Cit.Sci project? Barriers to using citizens? Success factors, why did these projects work? Technologies available and how to use the data.Academic Culture, breaking down the resistance to the amateur and How to enthuse the public and engage?
