Socientize project invites to contribute to the Citizen Science White Paper

21 Feb 2014 London - Fermin Serrano, project leader of the Socientize project, explains why it is important to participate in the consultation phase for the White Paper on citizen science that is now open until March 27. The white paper will play a role in for instance European Commission policy on citizen science. Fermin Serrano also explains why he was happy to be at the Citizen Cyber Science Summit in London, where this interview was done.

The Socientize project addresses the future of Citizen Science in Europe. In Citizen Science there are different roles of participation to make science more efficient using different tools including mobile devices, desktop grid computing and so on. Socientize is not only about science, it is also a social process dealing with policy outcomes.

The Citizen Cyber Science Summit was an excellent opportunity for the Socientize project partners to meet with their different stakeholders.
