Citizen Science Zurich


Our members form the base of Citizen Science Zurich. They assemble once a year in the General Assembly to discuss central issues. There are three membership forms:

  • Full membership is open  toprofessors/ heads of research groups based at the two founding institutions (University of Zurich and ETH Zurich).
  • An extraordinary membership is open to PostDocs and PhD students of the two founding institutions.
  • Interested researchers from other universities or public-legal institutions as well as citizens can join Citizen Science Zurich as Associate Members.

The General Assembly is composed of full, associate and extraordinary members, whereby only full members are entitled to vote. Extraordinary and associate members have a right of proposal to the General Assembly.

Researchers at both University of Zurich and ETH Zurich have a strong track record in Citizen Science, participatory research, and Citizen Science-related fields such as artificial intelligence, social science, and law. Our academic members represent a community of over 1000 researchers.
