Scivil is the Flemish knowledge centre for Citizen Science. Scivil wants more citizen science in Flanders and aims to accomplish this by uniting, supporting and informing scientists, citizens, institutions and companies.
Thanks to citizen science, citizens can contribute to scientific research and projects, regardless of their background knowledge and/or they can initiate projects themselves.
Scivil aims to extend the citizen science community in Flanders and to offer support for citizen science projects.
— To promote citizen science for scientists, citizens, companies and government.
— To unite interested scientists and citizens, so that together they can build stronger, higher quality citizen science projects.
— To support project initiators before, during and after the project.
— Advise scientists, civil society and government agencies about citizen science.
— Support current citizen science projects.
— Organise workshops and networking events.
— Bring citizen science to the general public through events and a traveling exposition.
