brings scientist and citizen closer together.

Getting started with citizen science?


Is citizen science for you?
What's the goal of your project? Which approach fits your research question? Where can I find reading tips to learn more about citizen science? Can I take part in events to learn about citizen science or to exchange experience with other practicioners? Where can I find partner organisations to help with communication development or other aspects of the project? Which options exist for funding


How do I find my target audience? How do I write a communication plan? How can I recruit participants and keep them motivated? How do I deal with feedback and project results? How do I gather and store data? How do I implement privacy standards, IP rights, GDPR and ethical standards in my project? How do I evaluate my project's impact? Which tools and platforms can I use to gather data from citizens?


What do I do after my project has finished? Can I find European financing to expand my project to an international scale? Can (parts of) the project live on after financing? Where do I store the project's data? Which tools can I use? What can I do to show my appreciation to the participants?
