Citizen Science for Health Conference 2023


Dates & place:

We are delighted to announce the dates of the first global Citizen Science for Health conference taking place Sunday 29 October – Wednesday 1 November 2023 at DesignLab, University of Twente, the Netherlands. The conference will be organized in close cooperation with University of Twente's TechMed Centre, as part of the MedTech Twente Week 2023. The event is initiated by the Working group Citizen Science for Health of the European Citizen Science Association ECSA.

Aims & format:

The conference takes place over four days and the scope aims to mark the start of a more concerted approach towards the development of Citizen Science in the domain of Health. The conference aims to touch both minds and hearts, and to inspire collaborations beyond paradigms. Therefore, a format is chosen that goes beyond a more traditional conference set-up. The conference will have an interactive character. This means that - aside from keynote lectures - we will organize parallel sessions, with formats including Workshops, Solution rooms, Posters, and Showcases. 

The conference is open to a broad global public (including academics, students, policy makers, citizens, societal organizations and companies), but also to a local audience interested in Citizen Science for Health.
