Discovery Trip: Capacity Building for Italian Citizen Science

This Discovery Trip will involve local and international decision makers in building capacity and developing a national strategy for Italian citizen science. The delegation visit will include a trip to Grosseto to meet with local citizen science stakeholders in preparations for the local stakeholder roundtable co-organised by the European Citizen Science Association, the Accademia Nazionale delle Scienze detta dei XL and Tekiu Ltd.

The First Italian Citizen Science Conference, held 23-25th November 2017 in Rome, was a great opportunity to bring together the emerging citizen science community in Italy and to share experiences of other European countries who have already established national networks. This Discovery Trip will introduce international stakeholders to the citizen initiatives active in Italy and provide the context for the roundtable discussions on the following day.
