Citizen science projects

AU is involved in many citizen science projects in a variety of ways, including running and evaluating projects, meta-research about citizen science, and projects related to supporting citizen science and capacity building for citizen science. Some projects are run by AU staff, others are collaborations with external partners.

Some projects are showcased in the tiles on the right with relevant links to the projects themselves. Below are lists of projects by university entity with links to the PURE record of the project. Other projects do not have a PURE record (yet), so this is not a comprehensive list of all citizen science-related projects at AU. There are also recorded project presentations from previous AU CS Network meetings. 

DIME: Digitale Metaldetektorfund: project continues based on original funding.
