when citizens participage in the scientific process

Welcome to Citizen Science!  

Various opinions and communication is required for the „big topics“ of our society – Citizen Science – the engagement of the community in science.

The University of Salzburg sees a great potential for projects which bring together citizens with science. It is a great objective for the University to build a bridge between the academic world and society.

 

Inspiration, Communication & Discussion are our key points.

 

The team of „Citizen Science“ helps with the communication between interested citizens and dedicated researchers.
