In Austria, there are numerous actors, especially in the science and education landscape, who are involved in citizen science and are open to collaboration between science, schools and society. Looking for contacts? Citizen Science contact persons can be found at many research and educational institutions. The working group "Citizen Science at/with schools" is also a good starting point.
