The ERC conference on Citizen Science and Frontier Research took stock of the activities regarding citizen science which have been undertaken as part of ERC or other EU-funded projects.

During the conference among others Kris Verheyen, one of the heads of the Forest & Nature Lab at Universiteit Gent and PI of the ERC Consolidator grant PASTFORWARD and ERC Proof of Concept grant UnderSCORE, shared citizen science projects on agrobiodiversity. Sarah Lebeer, head of the Lab of Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology at Universiteit Antwerpen, shared the Isala activities as part of the Starting grant project Lacto-Be.  

The breadth and diversity of the citizen science activities becomes clear from the conference (recordings), the factsheet with a brief overview of the ERC’s portfolio on citizen science and the showcase of citizen science by ERC grantees and other EU funded projects.
