[en] This workshop report illustrates how the 2011 Fukushima disaster has informed the development of citizen science as a distinct field, with citizens generating their own radiation measuring tools and data - often in ways that challenge formal institutional approaches to nuclear safety governance. It invites formal institutions (members of policy and oversight bodies, nuclear safety organizations, professional scientists) to proactively engage with bottom-up citizen science by considering how citizen science concepts and approaches can strengthen science policy, safety governance, and public engagement strategies.
