UNESCO is developing a global policy and regulatory agenda on Open Science (UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science) that will include Citizen Science as one important pillar. We have created a Citizen Science & Open Science Community of Practice (CoP) within the Citizen Science Global Partnership to establish a cooperation with UNESCO on that initiative.
The first request of this partnership with UNESCO is to produce a short paper by the end of May 2020. The paper shall reflect the Citizen Science perspective on Open Science and its development in future.
If you would like to get involved in the Community of Practice, or to contribute to the paper, please contact Libby Heburn on 0458 798 990.
