This one day online event brought to you by UKRI, the Foods Standards Agency and the Institute for Community Studies, will explore participatory research, citizen science and its impact on policy and practice. Includes international speakers, case studies and networking.

This event will take place online, Thu, 20 October 2022, 10:00 – 15:30 BST.

Join us to discuss participatory research and citizen science and their impact on policy and practice. This event aims to inspire and support you to explore what citizen science is and the opportunities it offers, for policymakers, funders and researchers alike.

A range of speakers from international research and policy areas will reflect on citizen science as a form of participatory research, and its impact on policymakers and practitioners around the world.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about current projects funded by UKRI and FSA which are exploring ways of embedding citizen science across research, from the safety of infant formula to young people’s mental health.

There will be opportunities to explore themes based on your interests in citizen science and its potential impacts, and network with others interested and involved in citizen science.

Who should attend this event?

This event is open to anyone to attend. You may be interested in this event if you are a policy-maker, funder, commissioner of research, or a researcher. You are welcome to attend if you are familiar with citizen science or interested in finding out more.
