The second Top Citizen Science call took place from November 7th, 2016 to January 16th, 2017 and invited Sparkling Science and FWF project leaders to submit a Top Citizen Science expansion project.
Out of 25 project applications about half came from natural sciences, the other half from humanities and social sciences, resulting in a pleasant distribution of scientific disciplines. Citizen science projects traditionally tend to have a natural sciences focus. The topics of the twelve funded projects are again very diverse. Citizen scientists can support researchers with their phenology work, help to develop new solutions for a fair copyright, map earth constructions in the Waldviertel or assist the research about the critically endangered bald ibis. More information about the projects can be found on the website of the Center for Citizen Science.
