2nd Networking event for young science and citizen science contacts
Date: 25/02/2019 13:00 - 17:30
Location: Unipark Nonntal, Salzburg, Austria
Citizen science, young science, public engagement, community science or science communication are commonly known terms but often are not understood and used the same way. Thus, the 2nd networking event for Young Science and Citizen Science contacts at Austrian research institutions will focus on finding a common understanding of concepts related to citizen science and cooperation between science and schools.
At first, terms that are often used in the cooperation with schools and the public will be collected and then defined in discussed. The discussion is followed by an exemplary presentation which will show how citizen science and young science are already put into practice at institutions. In this context, motivation as well as burdens for researchers will be highlighted.
The registration for the event closes on 15 February 2019.
