Vision-Building Workshop on Citizen Science
21 July 2020 @ 10:00 - 12:30
Can you imagine becoming part of the global effort to detect Gravitational Waves? Or explore cosmic events with a detector installed deep in the sea?
Citizen Science creates numerous opportunities for all citizens – independent of their location, gender, or education – to be involved in ground-breaking fundamental research. Through citizen science activities, everyone can contribute to the development of new knowledge. Increasingly, scientists from Large Research Infrastructures and Frontier Physics experiments are starting to share their data and ask for citizens to support the optimization of their detectors to enhance discoveries potential.
But how can citizens support their work?
Join us for this vision-building workshop in the REINFORCE project to help us design the best possible citizen science projects!
The workshop will be broadcasted on Zoom on the 21st of July 2020 from 10:00 AM to 12:30 AM CEST at this link, and it will showcase citizen science projects in frontier physics, with experts from infrastructures such as CERN, VIRGO/EGO, or KM3NeT introducing their ideas and engaging with participants to better undertand their interest, motivations and ideas to get involved and contribute in citizen science.
The workshop is part of the FRONTIERS Online Summer School 2020.
