Ep. 8 — On Planet European Commission — Exploring Citizen Science
In the previous episodes of Exploring Citizen Science, Alexander analysed what citizen science is from a theoretical stand-point. Also, he looked at projects on the ground. Eventually, he tried to understand the long-term legacy COESO could bear for the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). But as the first series of Exploring Citizen Science is coming closer to its end, he now wonders about the reasons why all of this - COESO and the focus on citizen science in SSH - is happening right now. And, most importantly, who is behind it. In this episode, Alexander uncovers the investment strategy of the European Commission into citizen science.
