LERU Doctoral Summer School 2017

Announcement of LERU Doctoral Summer School 2017

Date: 10–14 July 2017
Theme: Citizen Science – nexus between research and public engagement
Venue: University of Zurich

Read the full announement on the research services blog

Theme – Data Stewardship for Discovery and Innovation 

Citizen science – the involvement of non-professional scientists in research – is generating broad attention across and beyond the scientific community. Activities range from small-scale local projects, largely with layperson participation, to large-scale international projects, which may involve professional scientists and research institutions. Citizen science brings legal, ethical, commercial and privacy issues. The LERU Summer School addresses these and other related issues concerning citizen science and deals with the resulting implications for research and science in general.


  • Doctoral candidates will gain a better understanding of citizen science including opportunities and challenges and knowledge about what ethical, legal and commercial aspects are to be considered when engaging in citizen science projects
  • Doctoral candidates will gain knowledge about what skills are useful to manage a citizen science project
