[Science Espresso] Citizen Science Austria

  • Citizen Science

Sparks Science Espresso with Florian Heigl and Daniel Dörler, Department of Integrative Biology and Biodiversity Research, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna

Citizen science refers to a working method in which scientific projects are conducted with participation by interested amateurs. The participating citizen scientists report their observations, carry out measurements, or evaluate data according to scientists’ instructions. This trend has also reached Austria, where several citizen science projects are being conducted in various scientific fields. The Österreich forscht [Austria performs research] platform has been online since 2014; it’s maintained by the Citizen Science Working Group at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna. Its aims are to host a network linking up citizen science practitioners in Austria, and to qualitatively develop this method.
