CitSci Helvetia 2021

Connecting Citizen Science in Switzerland

Citizen Science (CS), the production of scientific knowledge outside of traditional scientific institutions, has found fertile ground in Switzerland. In recent years, practitioners have taken full advantage of the wide spectrum of opportunities provided by collaborative approaches, with projects spanning scientific domains, social issues, and geographical boundaries. Whether organized by academic institutions, done in school contexts or organized as a grassroots movement, Citizen Science in Switzerland has contributed both to the country’s scientific output and to reviving research at the interface of science and society.

The aim of “CitSci Helvetia 2021”, the first Swiss Citizen Science conference, is to bring together communities of practitioners in order to discover and connect the different traditions of Citizen Science in Switzerland. The goal is to celebrate this diversity as a significant contributor to the co-production of knowledge for a better future, and to provide a space to explore, share and develop new ideas and practices for Swiss participatory research.
