MICS: a platform to measure the impact of citizen science
The MICS project has developed a state-of-the-art tool for assessing citizen science’s impact. AI technology helps analyze over 200 variables to determine the impact of a project in five areas: society, the environment, the economy, governance, and science and technology. The free-to-use, open-access platform is available to anyone looking to improve their assessment of impact.
MICS is the work of six European partners:
- Earthwatch is an environmental charity with science at its heart.
- IHE Delft Institute for Water Education is the largest international graduate water education facility in the world.
- The Alto Adriatico Water Authority (AAWA) is a Public Body responsible for the management of the rivers flowing into the Northern Adriatic Sea
