Citizen science: doing research WITH citizens

This upcoming online meeting in the context of 'Radboudumc Prevention Research' will focus on Citizen Science. During the meeting we will try to answer the questions: What is Citizen Science? Why would you want to apply Citizen Science? And how do we involve citizens in our projects? What can we learn from each other? In addition, existing Citizen Science projects will be highlighted.


  • Prof. Dr. Dick Thijssen
  • Dr. Renske van Wijk
  • Kris Bevelander
  • Dr. Martijn de Groot

What is Citizen Science?

Citizen science (CS) is about involving citizens (whether or not in their role of patient) and scientific researchers (more and better). This can be done from both sides, in different degrees: involvement and participation of citizens in the agenda-setting, implementation and evaluation of scientific research (citizen/patient participation) and involvement and participation of researchers in the agenda-setting, implementation and evaluation of citizen initiatives in the field of knowledge and innovation (science participation).
