Come and join us in welcoming Antoine Blanchard (Chargé de programmes Numérique + Transfert Mission Investissements d’avenir, University of Bordeaux) and discussing Citizen Science projects, best practices and networks with him.

Antoine will be visiting the University of Edinburgh at the end of May and this is a perfect opportunity not just to introduce him to projects being carried out at UoE/by members of the network outwith the University but also to hear about Citizen Science endeavours that are taking place at Bordeaux.

This will also be a first chance to think about our own network and its future (a full meeting for this purpose will be convened in June).

26 May – 2.30-4.00 pm – Room H01, ECA Main Building, 74 Lauriston Place, EH3 9DF

A brief blurb about Antoine and his presentation is provided below, we’d welcome other participants presenting their projects. This doesn’t require preparation – you’ll be talking about what you’re doing! (though you may bring any visuals if you wish).

Antoine is visiting the University of Edinburgh as part of an administrative Erasmus + mobility, to find out about UoE’s digital projects (among otherthings). Antoine holds an engineering degree in agricultural science and a MSc in social studies of science. He is passionate about the current challenges of open science (reproducible research, altmetrics, open access, science blogging, crowdsourcing, crowdfunding…), about which he has written extensively: http://publicationslist.org/antoine.blanchard.

At the University of Bordeaux, Antoine is in charge of a broad projects portfolio comprising digital projects, knowledge exchange, and building challenge-based research agendas.

During this meeting, Antoine will present a work in progress app to crowdsource MRI annotation in neuroscience research, in a game format, and he will seek feedback from the experience of CSCS@ED in order to build a similar citizen science network in Bordeaux.
