MG sent a mail today suggesting some relevant literature about citizen science (CS) as well as on how to write an Ethical application for a research study. ‘when going through the literature about CS, I see clear similarities with the literature on wicked problems and on motivations for transdisciplinary science. They all share the same foundational view that there is an unavoidable subjectivity in the perception and understanding of problems that at least to some extent have a social character.
Here is the project application for Sustain@Home, which entails four sub-projects of which Bostadsförsöket is project number three.
