Citizen Science for Health

Citizen Science (CS) is a key element in the transition to Open Science among universities and seen as a way to create impact. In CS-projects, non-academics conduct scientific research. In practice, CS-projects are expert-driven and citizens are merely used as advisors or an extension of researchers to collect data. In this talk, Kris will give an introduction to Citizen Science for health related research and we will discuss possibilities to apply Citizen Science in your research projects.
Dr. ir. Kris Bevelander is junior Principal Investigator ‘Citizen Science for Health’ at Radboudumc. She investigates the empowerment of citizens and (citizen) scientists in two tracks: (1) CS4H for meaningful involvement of vulnerable patients and citizens, and (2) CS4H in public and personal health and prevention. The tracks are embedded in her position at two Academic Collaborative Centres, where continuous knowledge utilisation takes place between research, education, policy and practice. In her work, Kris involves citizens with low literacy skills and/or intellectual disabilities in every step of the research cycle or technology design phase and strives for equal and meaningful partnership. She also coordinates the movement ‘Green, Healthy and on the Move’ (‘Groen, gezond en in beweging’) which established the first Dutch Local Prevention Agreement (LPA). Within this movement, Kris is involved in the development of ‘Fieldlabs’, in which citizens, local professionals, researchers and students will cooperate to improve citizen’s health in CS4H-projects.
