IMPETUS Call for Citizen Science Project

The IMPETUS project is looking for new and sustaining citizen science projects to support and promote in their latest open call! If you’re utilising citizen science practices in inventive ways to address societal challenges, IMPETUS is eager to engage with your initiatives.

In this open call, IMPETUS is looking for Citizen Science projects for two exciting opportunities, the IMPETUS Accelerator and the European Union Prize for Citizen Science.

This Call will run from January 10th until March 12th for the European Union Prize for Citizen Science and March 14th for the IMPETUS Accelerator.
  • The IMPETUS ACCELERATOR includes a one week bootcamp, online mentoring and training, peer learning, networking and promotion opportunities and financial support of € 20.000 (for kickstarting projects) or €10,000 (for sustaining projects).
  • The EUROPEAN UNION PRIZE FOR CITIZEN SCIENCE consists of three main awards. A Grand Prize of € 60.000, as well as two additional prizes to projects that best demonstrate how citizen science can be used to promote Diversity and Collaboration and Digital Communities, both of which will be awarded € 20.000.

Read all about it on the IMPETUS website. In January 2024, more specific information will be added.

IMPETUS organizes two online info/Q&A sessions on the 24th of January or the 28th of February. More details will be added soon on the website.
