    Hi everyone,

    I would like to invite you to participate in a short 8-10 minute survey on citizen science funding in the SSH, part of the Collaborative Engagement on Societal Issues (COESO) project.

    The survey is on citizen science funding in the SSH and the results will help the COESO project in identifying funding needs for different types of stakeholders in the SSH community for participatory research projects with and for society.

    COESO gathers 15 partners from 6 different European countries. One of its main objectives is to work with funders to innovate funding schemes for citizen science in SSH.

    Survey link

    More info can be found in this blog post. Responses can be submitted until April 15.
