Citizen Science in Österreich

Schlagworte: Bürger*innenbeteiligung, Open Science, Netzwerk, Citizen Science, Österreich

Abstract

Citizen Science, die aktive Einbeziehung von Laien ohne akademische Ausbildung in den wissenschaftlichen Prozess, hat in den letzten Jahren eine massive Zunahme im Rahmen akademischer Disziplinen und Projekten erfahren. Diese aktive Beteiligung kann auf viele verschiedene Arten gestaltet werden, die oft projekt- und kontextspezifisch sind. Die Popularität der Citizen Science geht Hand in Hand mit der Diskussion über Open Science, und tatsächlich sind beide Konzepte in vielerlei Hinsicht eng miteinander verbunden. Während in der offenen Wissenschaft Laien nicht unbedingt in ein Projekt einbezogen werden müssen, nutzt die Bürger*innenwissenschaft häufig Methoden und Werkzeuge der offenen Wissenschaft, um diese aktive Einbeziehung zu ermöglichen. In diesem Text geben wir eine kurze Einführung in die Citizen Science, ihre Verbindungen zur Open Science und die Entwicklungen der Citizen Science in Österreich in den letzten Jahren und in der Zukunft.
