Agenda and minutes

  • Motivation
    • new Document called "Scaling up Citizen Science What are the factors associated with increased reach and how to lever them to achieve impact" in the group "Examining the use and practices of Citizen Science for EU policies". Giovanni Maccani, Margriet Goossensen, Valeria Righi, Javier Creus, Mara Balestrini
      • (Requires an ECAS id)
      • Last paragraph in "9.1.2 Elements supporting the spreading and up-scaling processes"
      • "These challenges can be tackled by setting close cooperation between public and private partners, at both the local and international level, to enable the sharing of knowledge and expertise, with the ultimate goal of delivering cyberinfrastructure support by offering, for instance, analysis and visualization tools to be shared among interventions. However, there is a need for a common agreement for a blueprint to establish process architecture * and collaboration systems *for citizen science technological development. To-date, such initiatives exist, but are often piecemeal, rather than integrated and built on synergies among the actors across these networks. In this way, it is worth mentioning, beyond the Citizen Science discipline, the effort of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). This is an online environment with open and seamless services to store, manage, analyse and re-use research data, across borders and scientific domains. The EOSC approaches open data with FAIR principles, meaning that data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable. The EOSC also promotes open data sharing, advocating that it should become the default option for all EU-funded scientific research.
  • From the WeObserve Open Data Challenge
  • In relation with the EC2020 I keep finding things here an there:
  • Coordination with the CSA Data and Metadata working group
  • Writen outcomes from the CoPs and this CoP
    • The coordinatro of the CoPs (Uta Wehn) has issue a call for participation in a scientific paper that will sumarize the lessons learnt in seting up the WeObserve CoPs. It is not about the outputs of the CoPs; but about the process and benefits of having CoPs: Two ways of contribution: Responding the survey or actively participate as co-author of the paper
    • The second ER should be produced soon to conclude our second block of activities
