Organisational Units

Principal investigators of running FWF or OeAD Sparkling Science Projects are invited to submit applications for expansion projects, which enable active involvement of citizens.

Funding will be made available for the expansion of FWF-funded research projects (incl. PEEK) or OeAD-funded Sparkling Science projects which are suitable in terms of content and methods and which are to be expanded to include "citizen science" components. Citizen science includes all activities of persons whose main professional function is not to contribute to generating new research insights. In the context of this initiative, it is understood as the active involvement of citizens and their knowledge, resources and commitment in scholarly research and the generation of new scholarly insights.

The maximum amount of funding is €50,000 per application, duration of projects is max. two years.
