More about the Engaging Citizen Science Conference

The Engaging Citizen Science Conference is sponsored by the Novo Nordisk Foundation and Aalborg University. It invites all citizen science stakeholders to come together to showcase how engaging citizen science can be.

Citizen science in fact can help boosting scientific research, increasing public participation in scientific research, and empowering citizens in their everyday life. With roots in amateur science and participatory democracy, citizen science is rapidly developing and including innovative approaches, to promote and sustain participation and empowerment.

The Conference is preceded by the Open Citizens’ Day on April 24, supported by the Danish Science Festival. On this day, the public is invited to actively participate in citizen science projects, trying out different types of projects, and be able to meet and talk to the researchers behind the projects.
