  1. 1. The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science_ 1000001 Labs Luigi Ceccaroni XXIII Congreso Español de Ornitología Badajoz, November 4th , 2017
  2. 2. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science Kinds of participation: from PUS to PES ❏Public Understanding of Science ❏ Inquiring and acting about the nature and extent of public ignorance around science ❏ Commitment to “top-down” communication ❏Public Engagement in Science ❏ More “symmetrical” approach ❏ Citizen empowerment 2
  3. 3. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science Key role: civic educators ❏Principal instigators for the engagement of citizens ❏ In affairs of public interest (including scientific research) ❏Development and implementation of educational strategies ❏Design of plans to provide certain information to certain people ❏Opening up opportunities for others to learn in certain ways 3
  4. 4. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science A new conceptual model for engagement ❏Recruitment of new citizen observers from society at large ❏Consolidation and expansion of existing citizen-science projects ❏Improvement of knowledge transfer and capacity building ❏Training and community building of local-networks leaders 4
  5. 5. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science Advantages of common knowledge representations and interoperability ❏Different data repositories can be analysed together ❏Different communities can be served ❏Cost-efficiency in technology development in all citizen- science projects ❏Consistent, scalable approach to citizen science data- management worldwide 5
  6. 6. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science Challanges of interoperability ❏ Birdtrack ❏ Ornitho ❏ eBird ❏ Natusfera ❏ Sacre ❏ Sacin ❏ Noctua ❏ ... 6 ❏ BioCollect – Atlas of Living Australia ❏ SciStarter ❏ PPSR_CORE (CitSci.org) ❏ The Federal Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science Catalog ❏ Dublin Core ❏ GBIF (IPT) ❏ ...
  7. 7. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science Main actors involved ❏ECSA ❏CSA ❏ACSA ❏CS COST Action ❏OGC 7
  8. 8. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science Impact of interoperability on engagement ❏Access to a larger set of data ❏Increased recognition across platforms ❏Increased ability to create new projects ❏Better understanding of global phenomena 8
  9. 9. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science Interoperability as part of technological improvements of citizen science ❏More automation, more fun, more participation ❏Sharing is everything:  Participants - sharing participants and enabling them to progress from one project to another  Data - data not in silos and easily combined (interoperability needed) to generate greater insights  Scale - increased likelihood for projects to expand and grow as a result of the above 9
  10. 10. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science New opportunities ❏Framing bird-monitoring technologies used by citizens as a form of public engagement that can be included within European Commission’s concept of Open Innovation: based on the quadruple-helix model, for example in relation to the Internet of Things and Smart Cities 10
  11. 11. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science New opportunities ❏Creation of several monitoring blueprints for different socio- cultural contexts ❏Working on the transition of certain aspects of bird- monitoring technologies and citizen observatories from human action to AI 11
  12. 12. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science New opportunities ❏Evolving the bird-monitoring platforms towards adaptive hypermedia systems that track the user’s behaviour to determine what the user’s background, experience, knowledge and interests are, and then provide a personalised educational/environmental experience 12
  13. 13. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science New opportunities ❏Extending interoperability and data quality control beyond bird monitoring, together with international citizen-science associations, COST action, large EU projects ❏Understanding and better managing temporal and spatial bias 13
  14. 14. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science New opportunities ❏Finding specific links between bird-monitoring technologies and EU policy making, together with other citizen observatories, which are already doing it (e.g., LandSense) ❏Novel analysis and decision-support tools 14
  15. 15. Luigi Ceccaroni - The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science The role of interoperability in encouraging participation in citizen science 15 Citizen science is work undertaken by civic educators together with citizen communities to advance science, foster a broad scientific mentality, and/or encourage democratic engagement, which allows society to deal rationally with complex modern problems Thank you! www.1000001labs.org Luigi Ceccaroni luigi@1000001labs.org Skype: luigi.ceccaroni
