This report seeks to shed light on these questions by investigating a broad variety of citizen-generated data projects. It starts with two assumptions: 1) citizen-generated data is created through different project setups, or chains of data exchanges. These setups may involve cross-sector collaborations–including individual citizens, civil society organisations, funders, public institutions, policy makers and private companies; 2) project setups operate in different contexts that shape the incentives to produce and use citizen-generated data.
