Citizen science. The text reviews the trajectory of the entity connecting research with the challenges of citizenship.
The European Public Mosaic, the open access journal of the School of Public Administration of Catalonia, published in its March volume an article about the Barcelona Citizen Science Office.
The text describes the work of the Office, since its creation in 2012, in the consolidation of citizen science projects in the Barcelona area and in the implementation of initiatives where citizenship becomes an essential part of the research process. The article looks back at several successful experiences where citizens have been actively involved in various research projects assigned to the Office and where initiatives taken by the entity itself are also included, such as the programmes Citizen Science in the Neighbourhoods and Citizen Science in the Schools. It also looks to the future and describes the next challenges facing the entity and citizen science in general
