We are always interested in project collaborations and would like to help any good citizen science project grow. However, our resources only allow us to support a limited number of projects. Therefore, we focus on supporting projects that reflect our core values:
We also aim at supporting research that generates knowledge and data to help assessing, monitoring and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We encourage project proposers to reflect on how their research can benefit this global effort.
There are several aspects that you need to consider when planning your Citizen Science project. We support you across these aspects, ranging from impact-oriented planning (how do I achieve impact?), to community management (how do I reach out to participants, how do I involve and motivate them?), to public communication (how do I communicate about my project and its achievements?), to evaluation (how do I measure the success of my project?).
The planning of your Citizen Science project is done – now it needs to transition from paper to reality. We also offer support in various aspects of project implementation. This support can encompass areas such as communications, community management, event organization and customized use of our tools, among others.
Participatory Citizen Science projects benefit greatly from professional facilitation. Are you considering whether this could be useful for your project? We are happy to support you or establish contact between you and experts from our network.
