This year, the I-CHANGE project attended the EGU General Assembly 2024, an event that brings scientists from all over the world to delve into multidisciplinary discussions, share ideas and projects in the same field.

Reflecting the growing interest in the recent years in citizen science topics and projects, the Genoa Living Lab presented the research “Citizen Science in Meteorology: Enhancing weather understanding through innovative instrumentation and community engagement.

On April 15th, the I-CHANGE Genoa Living Lab team presented a case study, illustrating the integration of state-of-the-art instrumentation with community participation in Living Labs. The presentation highlighted the crucial role of citizen science in advancing meteorological research. During the session, the research team discussed the challenges and opportunities of this approach, emphasizing the validity of community-collected data and its impact on the accuracy of local weather forecasts.
