Citizen Science Hackathon

15. September 2020 16. September 2020

Are you interested in sustainable innovations in areas such as climate change and environmental protection, health and education, gender equality and diversity? Do you want to develop ideas to improve living conditions in sustainable cities and communities in interdisciplinary teams? And, last but not least: Do you believe in the importance of involving citizens in research and innovation? Be part of our Citizen Science Hackathon “Citizen Science meets Societal Challenges” at the Aula am Campus of the University of Vienna! The #CSHackathon2020 aims at developing (digital) prototypes addressing current societal challenges as well as encouraging citizens to get involved in the process of changing society. Within two days, early career researchers, students and citizen scientists will develop their ideas in interdisciplinary teams of 4-6 people, supported by professional trainers. The first-place winners will get a chance to present their project at the Austrian Citizen Science Conference; the Faculty of Earth Sciences, Geography and Astronomy is sponsoring a Faculty Award for innovative ideas within their range of topics, too. But above all, we are looking forward to two days full of creativity, coding and lots of pizza & fun!
