European Citizen Science Association launched

    A major new initiative has been launched to develop an EU-wide association for citizen science.

    European Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik welcomed the creation of the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) at an event at EU Green Week on 6 June 2013. The new body will be based in London and headed by Dr Linda Davies of Imperial College London – the director of OPAL. ECSA aims to involve all European Union member states and engage five million people across the EU over the next four years.
    Everybody is encouraged to join ECSA to promote best practice and excellence in citizen science. More information can be found at the
