DIGITAL AGENDA FOR EUROPE
Open Science and Open Data for Innovation
Session 4I – Auditorium 6, 21/10/2015 (09:00-10:30)
How can the concurrent trends:
Increasingly open access to research and public data;
An explosion of data and its availability;
Better means to make sense of data for public and private good;
Greater involvement of the public and individuals in the scientific process and decision making
together give greater opportunities for innovation, more democratization in science, and benefits for the citizen, organisations, cities and businesses?
How do these trends change how we do science?

DIGITAL AGENDA FOR EUROPE
Citizen Science in Europe
Room 5A, 21/10/2015 (16:00-16:45)
In this session we aim to bring together key actors with different perspectives to shape the future of Citizen Science in Europe, providing community-based evidence to policy actors and selecting key roadmapping options.
In order to present an holistic view of the different models of experiments, presentations will come from best practices covering a wide range of disciplines and technologies.
The initial part of the session will showcase actors, experiments, technologies and platform which are being used in a wide range of possilibities: pooling of resources, crowdsourcing scientific tasks (data collection or analysis of tasks), digital social sciences and humanities researches, collective intelligence for new ways of creativity and knowledge, digital public spaces…
In second part of the session, we aim to follow up the community-based roadmapping process started in Socientize (www.socientzie.eu) with the idea of delivering an updated report for policy actions. Socientize delivered the White Paper on Citizen Science which is being used as a valuable input for policy making. We aim to follow up some of the key strategic discussions regarding EU-wide diversity and impact.
This session is organized by the core team of Socientize under Ibercivis Foundation, a Spanish-Portuguese platform dedicated to Citizen Science which is following Socientize activities.
Organised by: Fermin SERRANO (Fundación Ibercivis, Spain)
