CITIZEN SCIENCE AWARD 2017
The Citizen Science Award 2017 invited Austrian citizens - groups, school classes, individuals - to participate in eight citizen science projects from 1st May until 30th June. The aim of the Awards 2017 was to motivate citizens from all age groups to get involved in research.
There was a great diversity of topics and research questions: How many squirrels live in Austrian Cities? Which reptiles and amphibians are threatened by extinction in Austria? What is the Fragile X Syndrome (FXS)? Or how did the Jewish population of Lower Austria’s lives change – before, during and after the Nazi era? Observations, measurements, pictures, samples and more could be send to the research team using apps, email, special online platforms or mail. Here you can find all projects.
The award ceremony will take place on 21st November 2017 at the University of Vienna.
