Participatory data collection and processing is becoming more prevalent across Europe, especially in citizen science. The IMPETUS supports citizen science projects with the goal of making them more sustainable, inclusive and impactful. Through our first open call, we have recently selected a cohort of projects who will work on a variety of topics including sustainability, pollution, health, inclusion and diversity. This work, especially where citizen scientists engage with policy makers and innovators, raises new requirements for open/shared data availability, and tools to enable citizen scientists to make data available in meaningful ways, and also provides new opportunities to innovate with diverse datasets. We will discuss the benefits participatory data can have for innovation, and the barriers citizen science projects face when making their data available to innovators and policy makers.
