This workshop facilitated by Colette Kirwan and Alison Boyle from Science Foundation Ireland (shortly to become part of Taighde Éireann – Research Ireland) will provide an opportunity for staff, researchers and stakeholders working or interested in citizen science initiatives to engage in a measured discussion regarding funding strategies . SFI are interested in capturing the requirements and needs of the research community with respect to citizen science funding and how these might potentially be addressed in the planning of new Taighde Éireann funding streams and models. Attendees can expect to contribute to discussions around potential funding models for citizen science activities, with an emphasis on pragmatic considerations, hypothetical challenges, and recommendations from previous projects.

No prior preparation is required.

Theorising Research Ecologies? An Environmental Humanities Symposium. 11th April, H204 UCD Humanities Institute (hybrid).
