Citizen Science Award


Everybody can participate in research! Almost 10,000 people from all over Austria have already taken part in the Citizen Science Awards. Following the great success of the last three years, the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF) is inviting interested citizens - especially school classes - to participate in six research projects from 1 May to 30 June 2018.

How to take part?

The topics are diverse: looking for birds, photographing bumblebees, observing plants, collecting historical material such as photos or stories or formulating research questions regarding accident injuries.

Money and material prizes

The most committed citizen scientists, individuals and school classes, will be rewarded with material and cash prizes of up to 3,000 euros at a festive event in Vienna in autumn.

Especially for school classes: Special price for the most creative video

School classes are invited to send in creative videos of their participation in research! Pupils who document their project participation have the chance to win the special prize of 3,000 euros for the class fund. Want some inspiration? Last year's winning video can be found here.
