Project Description

The H2020 INCENTIVE project (GA. 101005330) addresses the lack of upstream citizen participation in research and innovation. The project strives to achieve this by institutionalising Citizen Science in 4 European universities: Autonomous University of Barcelona, University of Twente, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and Vilnius Gediminas Technical University.

To meet its objectives, INCENTIVE co-creates and operates 4 pilot Citizen Science Hubs: spaces within the pilot universities’ premises where citizens and local stakeholders can connect with researchers and scientists and become empowered to identify societal challenges and co-define solutions through Citizen Science. The final aim of INCENTIVE is to ground the principles of Responsible Research and Innovation at the regional ecosystem of the pilot universities, showcasing a sustainable example of how research institutions can engage citizens in a meaningful way.

The following scores were calculated using a statistically-driven machine-learning approach, a type of AI that learns to perform a task by analysing patterns in data. This is an experimental approach to citizen-science impact assessment, and the exact reasoning behind the scores is not explainable. The scores represent a best guess of the impact the project is having in each domain. Scores are recalculated and updated when “View impact report” is clicked.
