It is important to monitor and evaluate projects, to ensure a smooth process and to ensure that desired goals and deliverables are met. To this purpose, there are frameworks for the evaluation for citizen science projects. Citizen science for health is an upcoming domain within citizen science. In some aspects, citizen science for health is different from other domains, for instance in the fields of ethics. It is therefore imperative that there is a framework for the monitoring and evaluation of citizen science for health projects. As a first step towards such a framework, the aim of the roundtable sessions at Engaging Citizen Science conference was to elicit possible topics where citizen science for health distinguishes itself from other domains of citizen science. These included ethics, reciprocity, data privacy, transdisciplinary cooperation, personal and societal health outcomes, working towards sustainability and taking steps to create impact with the outcomes , and the education of different stakeholders. The input will be used, together with other input, for a framework for monitoring and evaluating citizen science for health projects.
