CRG Training for Scientists

Involving citizens in health research may benefit research in terms of new data sources, but also help empower communities and improve community health.

Join this workshop to map key stakeholders for your research project and new ways of involving communities. You will also discover new national and international funding landscapes for this type of methodologies.

We will also discuss how to introduce citizen science as a research methodology in grant applications and talk about specific opportunities for using the citizen science methodology, either within existing projects or through development of new projects.

This course has been organised in the frame of the TIME4CS project. 
The TIME4CS project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101006201
