The context for this is a large-scale complex systems public health project – the ActEarly UK Preventative Research Partnership. It explores the ways in which such an approach to doing citizen science within the city collaboratories of Bradford, in the north of the England, and Tower Hamlets, in East London, plays out. The opportunities and challenges of working with multiple consortium stakeholders across policy, academia and the third sector are discussed.

Lastly the webinar seeks to discuss how these approaches respond to civil society organisations and other stakeholders, and the role of researchers within them.

University of Gothenburg Webinars on Citizen Science

The webinar is part of the monthly series on new developments in the field of citizen science. Citizen science is here to be interpreted in the broadest sense, including different participatory participatory research activities in the natural and social sciences and the humanities, as well as community based initiatives. We welcome presentations and discussion papers on the phenomenon of citizen science, including historical as well as STS-informed studies of current issues.
