How can I integrate Citizen Science into my research?
Date: 27/03/2019 14:00 - 18:00
Location: OeAD, Ebendorferstraße 7, 1010 Vienna
The workshop "How can I integrate Citizen Science into my research" is a pre-event of the European Researchers' Night. You can register for the workshop from now until 20 March 2019. The number of participants is limited to 30.
Citizen Science is a method that differs significantly from research in the conventional sense: even before the project begins, project managers deal with topics such as communication with the project participants, motivation of the project participants, data quality and data integrity. For researchers who are not yet familiar with Citizen Science, this can be a major challenge.
In the workshop, we will present different approaches on how to involve the public in a research project and what challenges this engagement brings with it. Science communication in general will also be addressed.
The half-day event is organized by the coordinators of the Citizen Science Network Austria in cooperation with the Center for Citizen Science and is also a networking event.
