Citizen Science Award


This year Austrian citizens – school classes, individuals – are again invited to participate in citizen science projects. The aim of the award is to motivate citizens of all age groups to get involved in research. School classes can win money prizes, individuals will receive material prizes from the research institutions. All prizes will be awarded during a festive ceremony in autumn.

How to participate

From now until 30th June 2017 citizens, especially pupils, are invited to take part in eight research projects about e. g. squirrels, bees or political participation. Citizens can send their observations, measurements, pictures, samples, etc. via online platforms, e-mail or by post to the research team. Please be aware that periods of participation vary between projects!
