The European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) is a non-profit organisation that supports the growth of the citizen science movement in Europe and enhances the participation of the public in scientific processes. Since its establishment in 2013, its member base and support has grown, with individual and organisational members now spread across Europe and the world. ECSA’s headquarters, which is hosted by the Museum für Naturkunde (MfN) in Berlin, Germany, has a talented and diverse team dedicated to supporting and developing citizen science in practice, politics and science.
They engage with and support ECSA members and non-members through a wide range of activities, which they promote through ECSA’s working groups and participation in several Horizon 2020 (H2020) projects. ECSA also participates in the EU-Citizen.Science consortium, an online platform for sharing knowledge, tools, training and resources for citizen science that was launched in 2020.
