Citizen Science Award
Since 2015, the Austrian Ministry of Education, Science and Research has supported research projects with the aim to inspire citizens for reserach and to encourage active support. Nearly 12,000 citizens have since then participated. The most enthusiastic citizen scientists have been awarded with prizes in a festive event by the ministry together with the research projects.

The most enthusiastic citizen scientists will be awarded at a festive event on 19 November 2019 by the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research together with the research projects.
