Citizen Science Lab
In the Citizen Science Lab, researchers, citizens and societal organizations co-develop innovative research projects to create new scientific knowledge. The Citizen Science Lab is coordinated by Leiden University (Observatory and Science Communication & Society).
The Citizen Science Lab brings together residents, scientists and societal organizations to gain new insights for science and society. We do this by setting up a network for Citizen Science in the Netherlands and by organizing workshops that focus on specific topics. During these workshops, we gather various stakeholders, including scientific representatives, to develop innovative projects and to answer important societal questions.
In 2018 we organized workshops on air pollution, archaeology and languages & cultures. These workshops lasted 4 to 5 days and were organized together with the Lorentz Center and other partners.
