Citizen Science Champions

A compilation of stories exploring the human experience and behind the scenes of citizen science projects that have made a difference in Europe, through the stories of the communities that are breaking the barrier between science and society.

For each European mission, we have set out to find the most groundbreaking stories told by the Champions of citizen science - volunteers, policy-makers, scientists, athletes and others who have elevated public participation in science across Europe. Discover how anyone can be a champion of scientific research.
