The tricot approach
ClimMob supports a novel approach to citizen science: the tricot approach. Tricot approach simplifies the experimental process.
||Researchers and citizen scientists collaborate digitally using ClimMob. Digital communication saves time and money.
||From a pool of technology options, ClimMob randomly assigns each participant a combination of three options to test. This way, each option is tested many times.
||Participants test technology options under real use conditions, such as their own field or kitchen.
||Participants mainly use ranking (ordering from best to worst) to report their results.
||ClimMob lets you joins all the data and applies sophisticated statistical analytics at the touch of a button.
||Participants and researchers immediately get the information back and can start to discuss the results!
||The tricot approach has been tested scientifically across many research projects.
Tricot stands for ‘triadic comparison of technology options’. The approach derives it name from the fact that citizen scientists compare multiple technology options in sub-sets of just three, in ‘triads’.
