Proposing research topics, reporting observations and conducting measurements - citizen science projects actively involve interested members of the public in the process of gaining research insights. Take part in the current FWF survey and help evaluate existing citizen science funding activities.
For four years now the FWF has been funding outstanding citizen science projects in which researchers from the field of basic research cooperate with citizens. The current call for proposals runs until 20 April 2020.
To enable further development in the funding of citizen science projects the FWF is currently conducting a survey in cooperation with the “Österreich forscht” platform. The aim is to evaluate the underlying conditions and requirements for citizen science projects.
