LibOCS: University libraries strengthening the academia-society connection through citizen science in the Baltics

A new Erasmus+ KA2 project in higher education. Duration: 1/1/2022-30/12/2024. Funded through the Estonian National Agency.Academic libraries in Baltic countries have been actively involved in OS activities for about a decade now. These libraries offer OS support services in HEIs; however, involvement in CS is still in the development phase. The connection between citizen-generated data at
citizen science projects to open science cycle is yet to be achieved. There is thus a huge potential in making science more accessible to society, by streamlining open and citizen science for improved knowledge at universities and beyond.
The project’s primary goal is to raise awareness and mainstream citizen science activities in Baltic countries (EE, LV, LT), which are experts in open science but not in citizen science. Besides keeping track of CS and OS implementation progress and procedures, document and publicly FAIR-share best practices, and engage non-expert public groups in
social engagement and collaboration. A Greek SME and a German partner enhance transfer of knowledge in citizen science.

Coordinator: University of Tartu, Estonia.
