Citizen Science for Health


Dates & place

Citizen Science for Health is delighted to announce the dates of the first global Citizen Science for Health conference taking place Sunday 29 October - Wednesday 1 November 2023 at DesignLab University of Twente, the Netherlands, The conference will be organised in close cooperation with University of Twente's TechMed Centre, as part of the MedTech Twente Week 2023. The event is initiated by the Working group Citizen Science for Health of the European Citizen Science Association ECSA.

Aims & format

The conference takes place over four days and the scope aims to mark the start of a more concerted approach towards the development of Citizen Science in the domain of Health. The conference aims to touch both minds and hearts, and to inspire collaborations beyond paradigms. Therefore, a format is chosen that goes beyond a more traditional conference set-up. Besides scientific symposia, the conference will include a diversity of interactive formats such as: dialogues, round tables, co-creation sessions, networking, poster sessions, field visits, walking meetings and art. 

The conference is open to a broad global public (including academics, students, policy makers, citizens, societal organisations and companies), but also to a local audience interested in Citizen Science for Health.

Further information

The organisation is currently working on the format and program. The call for abstracts will be out around midst of April 2023. Further information will be published on the conference website. Please keep an eye on the website for information regarding program, registration, questions and call for abstracts.
