SMART-ER Webinars on Citizen Science: Examples of Citizen Science Approaches at ECIU University

In this webinar, Prof. Fernando Vilariño (CVC-UAB) will introduce the ECIU’s SMART-ER project and its approach to Citizen Science. The objective of this action is twofold: 1) On the one hand, to boost a strong Community on Citizen Science within the ECIU Consortium. 2) On the other hand, to identify potential lines of collaboration between projects and to foster the creation of SMART-ER trans-national pilots in Citizen Science in Q2 2022, to be funded by tee SMART-ER project.

We will analyze how Citizen Science is approached in the ECIU Consortium with 3 clear examples:

1) Prof. Egle Butkeviciene (KTU) – Citizen Science as an Innovative Form of Citizen Participation for Welfare Society Development (CS4Welfare)

2) Prof. Ana Isabel Lillebø (UA) – Citizen science as an opportunity for biodiversity monitoring at the LTsER site Ria de Aveiro.

3) Ms. Anabel Sánchez (UAB) – Citizen Science – CREAF landscape.

After all the presentations, there is an open turn for questions and debate.
