shipping company ship owner Citizen Science for research and teaching students research with citizens science

dialogue between citizens and researchers

Research projects must produce usable results. Basic research is often very theory-laden, elitist, and university-based. On the other hand, citizen science actively involves scientific laypersons and students in research projects, from which relevant research results can then emerge. Science can often not be understood by lay people. One task of Citizen Science is to integrate citizens into scientific research projects so that they then become understandable and comprehensible to them.

Citizen Science is therefore an excellent way to make science tangible for and accessible to everyone. Citizen Science produces a dialogue between citizens and researchers and raises awareness for societal challenges such as environmental pollution, intercultural differences, and climate change, while working against indifference.

Researching together - for a better future.
