Summary of the workshop:
In this workshop, we aimed at mapping the opportunities and challenges for Citizen Science in Social Sciences and Humanities. This workshop focused on discussing the concept, methods and existing practices of citizen science in SSH, such as through action research methodology and the use of citizens as volunteers to track their behaviors and perceptions in everyday life. To improve our understanding of citizen science in SSH the workshop set a target to develop a paper as an outcome of this COST activity.
