The Open Innovation in Science Center (https://ois.lbg.ac.at/) has started the PPIE program (https://ppie.lbg.ac.at), to support the participation of citizens in Austrian research institutions with funds between € 20,000- € 60,000.
Ground Truth 2.0 was a 3-year EU funded project that set up and validated six citizen observatories in real conditions, in four European and two African demonstration cases.
CSEOL Implementation Phase
We’ve been looking for ideas that provide fantastic opportunities for citizen scientists – or the wider public – to validate what satellites observe or to put those images to use. The CSEOL Call went out around the world, with great ideas coming in from four continents. We’re now moving into the implementation phase – where the four CSEOL pilot preparing their projects, implementing their project, all working towards a Demo Day, where they demonstrate what their project has achieved.
Our goal is to take great ideas to funding in less than 6 months – in a competitive setting.
