Welcome to the sixteenth edition of the Project Repository Journal which is live and freely available to read here.

Societal issues and citizen engagement are some of the core values the EDMA was founded on. But why is citizen engagement so imperative to the scientific community? Easy answer – contributions and collaborations with citizens can fuel new knowledge and understanding that benefits both science and society.

Many projects are now building public engagement into their dissemination strategies and the PRj is perfectly placed to help scientists and researchers meet this objective by simplifying research into layman’s terms and making it freely available on a global scale to all. Within this edition we have a link to a podcast that goes into more detail on how citizen engagement can you empower your research project P.16.
