The REINFORCE project (Research Infrastructures FOR Citizens in Europe) has created a series of citizen science projects on frontier Physics research, with citizen scientists making a genuine and valued contribution to managing the data avalanche. The goal is to actively engage citizens in the research done in several participating Large Research Infrastructures (e.g. VIRGO, KM3NET).
One of the four citizen science projects is “Deep Sea Hunters”. Deep Sea Hunters will invite citizens to optimize the KM3NeT neutrino telescope against sources of environmental noise which have never been systematically studied, while engaging in the exciting world of neutrino astronomy.
Within those webinar series, next session will take place on 26 February 2021 (15-16h CET). The Webinar will give an overview of the goals and objectives of Deep Sea Hunters and how it will be implemented, showcasing the various tasks that citizens will be invited to participate in and how their input will be fundamental to explore the environment of the deep sea below 1000m depth in which humanity has little experience so far.
