As part of International Clinical Trials Day, the Sant Joan de Déu Foundation and Science4Pandemics are organising a conference on 18 May in the auditorium of the SJD Paediatric Cancer Centre in Barcelona to highlight the value of citizen science
During the event, aimed at students aged 14-18, the project's researchers will present the educational game we have developed, introduce the concept of citizen science and explain why it is important for young people to participate in science. The event aims to encourage young people to participate in two of the project's citizen science studies - on the acceptability of vaccines and the digitisation of clinical trials. 
In order for young people to participate in the citizen science project, they will need to complete the vaccine study questionnaire (available here) before the day. In this way, the researchers' presentation will not influence their answers. During the day, young people will participate in the Science4Pandemics participatory research via their mobile devices.
