BRITEC Citizen Science toolkit available

We are happy to announce that the BRITEC Citizen Science toolkit is now available. It contains examples of various IT tools, which could be used during the whole cycle of the creation and implementation of Citizen Science initiatives. Additionally, reflections on how to address research ethics and what are the roles and responsibilities of the actors involved in these types of projects are also included as part of the report. Finally, some examples of useful sources and CS networking platforms developed under various Horizon 2020 projects relevant for this purpose are given, in case further information is needed.
