CitizenHeritage, funded within the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission, is a project about the involvement of citizens in cultural heritage as a booster for sustainable university research and higher education.

The starting point for the project’s activities and reflections is a substantial, evidence-based review of practices of Higher Education engagement in citizen-enhanced open science in the area of cultural heritag, including a short survey just launched.

This survey is a collective effort of several European institutions to collect and analyze practices in a less developed field: citizen science in the cultural heritage sector.
We wish to gather initiatives, activities or practices on the topic of tangible and intangible heritage in Europe and in which citizens have been involved within the framework of a scientific project. We particularly wish to analyze the role of universities in this respect.

The form is accessible here.

Learn more about the Study here.

All practices which will be analyzed and showcased in an open access study expected in September 2021.

The survey will be open until January 20, 2021 and you can answer in any of following languages: EN, FR, DE, IT, NL, EL, ES. All data will be treated in compliance with GDPR.
