  • To undertake  a systematic review of the ways in which researchers can be involved in outreach and develop a set of good practices that improve science and evolution literacy.
  • Development of standardized tools to enhance researcher engagement in outreach.
  • Develop material to enhance researcher engagement in outreach (best practice guide).
  • Organize a joint meeting with existing initiatives on citizen science to explore citizen-science projects with an evolutionary focus.
