Iliad Webinar Series: Citizen Science for Digital Twins of the Ocean, 8-10 March 2023, 15:00 CET

Start: Wednesday March 8th, 2023
End: Friday March 10th, 2023

This event is organised by The Iliad Digital Twin of the Ocean as part of a series of webinars.

Digital twins of the environment need large volumes of data and often combine diverse data from a variety of sources. While citizen science has been mentioned as a potential data source for digital twins, the full potential of citizen science in this context has yet to be fully realised. The Iliad project aims to explore the potential for citizen science to contribute to creating digital twins of the ocean (DTOs) and how citizen scientists and citizens can benefit from digital twins.

This collection of webinars is aimed at ocean scientists and modellers who are unfamiliar with citizen science and are interested to learn more about how it can be applied in the context of digital twins of the ocean. The webinars will: use a range of real-world examples to introduce citizen science and related concepts; highlight the opportunities and challenges of engaging citizens in digital twins; and explore the potential for increased citizen involvement in several Iliad digital ocean twins.


Webinar 1 (8th March): An introduction to citizen science for digital twins of the ocean.

Webinar 2 (9th March): Opportunities and challenges for marine citizen science.

Webinar 3 (10th March): A case-led exploration of citizen science for digital twins of the ocean.
