ScienceUS - European project

Published on June 17, 2024 Updated on June 18, 2024

ScienceUs is a three year European project funded by the European Commision under the call HORIZON-WIDERA-2023-ERA-01-08. The call has specific directions, scopes and objectives. ULB, through the BATir department and Professor Samia BEN RAJEB, is one of the project's partners.

Citizen science, involving citizens directly in the development of new knowledge or innovations, is a rapidly emerging mode of research and innovation that can lead to increased quality and effectiveness, e.g., through collecting, processing or analysing new qualities and quantities of data.
Many citizen science initiatives could achieve much higher impact if they were implemented on a transnational basis, collecting, analysing and exploiting vast amounts of cross-country data and, thereby, building a multinational community of citizen scientists.
However, small-scale national citizen science projects often face practical, technical, or conceptual challenges and lack the support, the transnational coordination skills, and the resources, to upscale their efforts to a transnational level.
