Without fundamental research into mRNA, millions of people would not have been vaccinated against corona by now. At the same time, the call for more participation in research by ‘citizens’ is getting louder. After all, taxpayers can expect science to actively find a solution to its problems, right? But how to start such research and what’s the road to take? What are the opportunities, risks and quick wins? A conversation about best practices and failures, power and autonomy, and the role of laymen and experts.
What are the different ways to do citizen science and what are their pros and cons? How do collaborations with non-professional researchers arise? What are the roles and responsibilities of the different parties, how to secure them and what are the opportunities and risks?
This event is for everyone who does research in the field of citizen science and wants to team up with peers and for those who are interested in starting more engaged research.
