Glossary

The citizen science platform Österreich forscht offeres a variety of interesting information for a citizen science project start.

The Center for Citizen Science was established at the Austrian Agency for International Cooperation in Education and Research (OeAD-GmbH) in June 2015 by the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy and serves as an information and service center for researchers, citizens and experts from different disciplines.

Another task of the center is the cross-linking of the interested community beyond Austria.

The European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) is a non-profit association set up to encourage the growth of the Citizen Science movement in Europe in order to enhance the participation of the general public in scientific processes, mainly by initiating and supporting citizen science projects as well as performing research on citizen science.

ECSA is framing citizen science as an open and inclusive approach, for example by supporting and being part of the exploration, shaping and development the different aspects of the citizen science movement, its better understanding and use for the benefit of decision making. ECSA draws on +200 individual and organizational members from over 28 countries across the European Union and beyond.

Launched during the EU GREEN WEEK in June 2013, ECSA has grown from an informal network of researchers and communicators interested in Citizen Science into the European reference network of Citizen Science initiatives.
