The Citizen Science Award 2019 has started!

The Citizen Science Award 2019 has started! You now have the opportunity to participate until 5th July 2019. Join in and have fun while doing research!

The project "NestCams" of the Konrad Lorenz Research Station is also part of the Citizen Science Award. During the research period citizen scientists can watch and code short video sequences of breeding greylag geese and northern bald ibises, i.e. determine what the birds are doing on the nest. Just register on the platform Zooniverse and go to the project "NestCams" via this LINK!

Nice prices await the winners!

  • 1st price | 1000 EUR for the best school class
  • 2nd price | 750 EUR for the second best school class
  • 3rd price | material price for the best single person

For organisational reasons, prizes will only be awarded to participants from Austria.

DON'T FORGET: If you are going to compete for the Citizen Science Award, please send an email with your Zooniverse user name, email address and contact information to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We are proud to announce that already more than 1000 videos have been coded by citizen scientists on the first day of the Citizen Science Award! A big thank you to all who are participating and helping us with our research!
