Engagement with research projects can be achieved at different levels. Outreach, for example, is one way, Citizen science is another at the opposite side of the spectrum.

In the life-sciences, almost all researchers think that engagement is beneficial for the general public, and many also consider it beneficial for themselves[@burns2021From intent to implementation: Factors affecting public involvement in life science research]. However, public engagement with research is challenging, especially because of incentives, and thus many researches leave it aside.

I think one of the most valuable aspects of engagement is that Citizen science can create a more participative democracy.
