Citizen Science Workshop - 9 July 2012, RCH/017

Posted on 29 June 2012

This joint SEI/YESI workshop will be held to promote, develop and support the use of citizen science (research that is conducted mainly by non professionals) at the University.

The aim is to get people together who are currently involved in citizen science projects, or might be involved in the future, to network, share knowledge, issues and best practice, future ideas and how we can best link projects together. We would like people to come prepared with a project that they have been involved in that has used Citizen Science or a project idea that might have potential for using Citizen Science. Please share with any colleagues who you think might be interested. Places must be confirmed with Debbie Coldwell by Monday 2nd July 2012.
