The COESO project fosters the growth of citizen science/participatory research in the social sciences and humanities (SSH). We do so by engaging with and bridging three key communities: 1) the European social sciences and humanities community, 2) the citizen science community, and 3) the open scholarly communication community. As an integral part of the COESO project, 10 small citizen science “pilot” projects across 12 countries with a focus on social sciences and humanities disciplines were enabled. These projects represent research with diverse objectives, methodologies and collaboration styles, thus feeding COESO with insights and recommendations, directly from active citizen science practitioners, to fulfill the project’s vision—to help overcome the obstacles that hinder the development of citizen science in the social sciences and humanities. Our central result is the VERA hub, a virtual space for diverse stakeholders to connect and co-create research.
