Merry MICSmas 

Here we are: December. The fifth and final newsletter of the year. And what a year it has been! Global pandemic and national lockdowns aside, it’s been positively action packed. To summarise the last year, we’ve written the Twelve Days of MICSmas. Feel free to sing it rather than read it!

On the 12th day of MICSmas, the project gave to me:
12 months of hard work
11 citizen science project coordinators interviewed for their views on impact
10 citizen science workshops (four in Hungary, four in Italy, one in Romania, and one at the MICS plenary meeting at Cranfield)
9 projects in monthly SwafS calls
8 deliverables submitted*
7 reviewers engaged
6 partners collaborating
5 domains (economy, environment, governance, science and society) used to develop indicators of impact
4 case studies continuing with the co-design of citizen science
3 virtual conferences attended**
2 papers submitted to high impact journals
And a platform to measure impact
*by the end of December
**four by the end of today

You can watch members of the MICS team perform this Christmas carol here, if you’re in need of some festive cheer!
