On 21 January 2021, 16 Horizon 2020 citizen science projects met to facilitate interaction and exploit synergies, as well as to collect policy feedback. The meeting had been called by the Research Executive Agency (REA) of the European Commission. The projects are all funded under the Horizon 2020 ‘Science with and for Society’ Programme.

The event featured project pitch sessions, sharing of good practice, discussions on impact assessment, highlights of collaboration and learning opportunities, and policy feedback including on cascade funding to reach local communities, on involving vulnerable groups, and on actions that policy makers and research funders could take to boost citizen science.

Deputy Director General of DG R&I Signe Ratso opened the policy feedback part commenting that "This event is very timely as the European Commission just launched the European Research Area Communication in which closer links between science and society are fostered”,
