This report analyses ten event formats from the Doing It Together Science (DITOs) project (1 June 2016 - 31 May 2019). The contribution of this deliverable is to categorise ten DITOs citizen science activity formats into different typologies according to level of engagement: ● Raising awareness: to sensitise the public to social and environmental issues ● Participation: to engage citizens in contributing to scientific projects ● Co-design: to engage a variety of stakeholders in co-creating innovative and interdisciplinary projects. ● We also include the ‘Education’ typology, which engages and empowers young people across all levels of engagement. This taxonomy is intended to help event organisers and scientists pick the relevant citizen science activity formats for their specific goals and help them target particular groups. The report lists the main characteristics of each of the event formats, starting from their objectives, required resources, and showcases DITOs examples of each format as well as discussing their pros and cons. Finally, these event formats are analysed and synthesised to create a set of good practices suggestions for how to use events to engage citizens and society in scientific activities.
