Various grants and awards are available in the area of "Citizen Science". Among other things, up to 350,000 euros per research project can be applied for in cooperation with schools within the framework of "Sparkling Science 2.0". With the research competition "Citizen Science Award", the OeAD supports researchers in promoting their projects, especially in schools, and thus in generating or evaluating data.
