Citizen Science Clinic: Financial sustainability

Sustainability is usually one of the key concerns for many projects, not less citizen science ones. In this last session, participants will learn about existing funding opportunities for citizen science projects at European level. Following that they will hear from three different initiatives on how they made their initial projects financially viable. Finally, working in pairs, participants will have to think about their own projects and their economic sustainability.

Outcomes for this event

  • A better understanding of existing funding opportunities
  • New inspiration about how to pursue financial sustainability for their projects

More detailed programme information and speaker details will follow soon!
