Measuring Impact of Citizen Science

Developing metrics and instruments to evaluate citizen-science impacts on the environment and society

The MICS platform is now in a beta-testing phase and has not yet been launched. If you'd just like to explore the platform it is available here.

If you want to complete the assessment and help test the platform, please email Parky [This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.] so that the MICS team can keep track of everyone who is entering real project data in the platform.

"Like national presidencies, European Union framework research programmes have a fixed term in which they can execute their agenda — bolstering the economy, improving sustainability and so on. How well they do is best assessed in retrospect.

The current scheme, Horizon 2020, is the world’s biggest multinational research programme, having distributed €74 billion (US$90 billion) to more than 150,000 scientists participating in 31,000 projects or grants. When it ends this year, how will it be judged?"

MICS is part of the answer.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824711.
