Sociology Research


This EC-funded research project assesses how grassroots citizen scientists in three world regions (East Asia, Western Europe, Central Africa) mobilize new data devices and technologies to tackle environmental threats; and how formal institutions respond to citizen-driven environmental data practices. With concerned stakeholders, it addresses the challenges and pitfalls that emerge in these processes with the aim of developing mutually responsive environmental data governance approaches. The project is led by Dr. Michiel Van Oudheusden and supervised by Prof Jennifer Gabrys, who leads the AirKit proof-of-concept project. For further information, please click here.
