Competence and Expertise Offered
The MCSA has set ten goals, which include promoting migrant involvement in scientific research, establishing a network of citizen scientists, raising awareness of migrants’ contributions to science, advocating for policies that support citizen science, and contributing to a European-wide citizen science movement to emphasize the importance of citizen science initiatives.
We seek cooperation from institutions and the scientific communities in Norway and Europe to actively involve migrants. This involvement will promote equitable research practices and ensure diverse perspectives are reflected in new knowledge, contributing to a more inclusive and just society. we can address social issues related to sustainability, health, education, social justice, & more, benefitting both the migrant communities and the broader society.
