Citizen Science Award
Since 2015, the Center for Citizen Science has supported research projects to inspire citizens for reserach and to encourage active support. About 12,000 citizens have since then participated in various research projects. Every year, the most enthusiastic citizen scientists are awarded with prizes in a festive event by the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research together with the research projects. A review of the past awards from 2015 to 2018 can be found HERE.
And again in 2019, school classes and individuals have the possibility to take part in the Citizen Science Award. Seven research projects offer various activities from 1 April to 5 July 2019. The most enthusiastic citizen scientists will receive prizes of up to 1,000 euros for their contributions. The prizes will be awarded on 19 November 2019 by the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research together with the research projects at the University of Vienna.
