Doing Science together @Thünen

Here, the aim of the project is the establishment of a plattform to present Citizen Science (CS) activities and to connect people sharing an interest in CS. The plattform is meant to support the integration of Citizen Science in the science performed at the Thünen Instituts.

Background and Objective

1. Establishment of a research and action network

  • Status quo analysis of CS at the TI
  • Determination of requirements after the network
  • Implementation of the network
  • Promotion of the network within the TI / PI

2. Development of capacities for CS within the TI / PI

  • Identification of stakeholders in CS in the agricultural landscapes
  • Formation of a CS community at the TI (e.g. through a CS Roadmap @ TI)
  • International and national exchange with existing networks
  • Development of resources for CS at the TI

Integrate the results of capacity development into the network

Target Group

  • Thünen projects
  • Thünen scientists
  • External partners

Approach

Establishment of a research and stakeholder network

  • Literature research will determine the meaning and characteristics of CS
  • Elaboration of the CS criteria catalog serves as a basis for assessing CS projects at TI.
  • Status quo analysis of the structural structure of the TI and the associated PI created.
  • Analysis of the needs of CS projects
  • Implementation of a research and action network
  • Promotion of the network at TI / PI

Building capacities for CS within the TI / PI

  • Identification of CS stakeholders in the agricultural landscape at the TI
  • Interaction with international and national CS networks
  • Development of resources for CS at the TI
