Citizen Science Exploration Grant
UKRI Public Engagement
Call status: Open
Application window: 01 October 2019, 00:00 – 12 November 2019, 16:00
Citizen science is an important way in which diverse groups of people can participate in research and innovation, whether through collecting data, analysing data or helping researchers and innovators to develop better questions. At UKRI, we are now making a long-term commitment to citizen science in our public engagement vision.
Citizen science can potentially add value to almost any project. Yet embedding citizen science methods into the routine way that science is done requires a capacity building approach, where projects that are unfamiliar with citizen science are supported to assess their capacity and need for citizen science. Therefore, UKRI is offering the opportunity to apply for up to £20,000 (100% fEC) to allow researchers to develop pilot projects to build citizen science capacity into their work.
