Citizen science practices have different frames to general scientific research- the adoption of participatory methods in research design has long been pursued in citizen science projects. The citizen science research design process needs to be inclusive, flexible, and adptative in all its stages, from research question formulation to evidence-based collective results. This chapter focuses on the reflexivity approach and infrastructure needed to design citizen science projects, as well as associated key roles. We also discuss several participatory tools and give examples of participatory research practices in different european countries.

Identity Politics: Participatory Research and Its Challenges Related to Social and Epistemic Control in Social Epistemology 34(2):1-1, January 2020 DOI 10.1080/02691728.2019.1706121

Over the past 20 years, the participation of laypersons or representatives of civil society has become a guiding principle in processes of research and innovation. There is now a significant literature discussing collaboration between civil society organisations (CSOs) and researchers, with two interesting gaps. Firstly, the fact that research is mainly conducted within projects is often underestimated, although the format significantly frames knowledge production. Secondly, researchers and civil society organisations are closely related to their respective communities. We argue that this constellation – of project-related format, in combination with a strong relationship to communities – results in conflicts that express and lead to identity politics. The analysis is based on conceptual considerations as well as empirical findings, which were developed within the EC-funded CONSIDER project (2012–2015). It can be shown that identity politics is performed by socio-epistemic tactics, which are used to order the socially as well as epistemically hybrid space within projects. To explain differences in conflict intensity, we suggest the distinction between weakly tied and strongly tied identity politics. In sum, identity politics can be seen as one key element for social as well as epistemic control in transdisciplinary research projects.
