Finding funding for citizen science projects is not always easy. Funding bodies or calls have a different and specific focus and different requirements.

Not surprisingly, when asked, researchers wanting to engage in citizen science often indicate their need for support in finding the right funding channels and writing strong and convincing project applications.

On May 17th, UNICA together with EUTOPIA Train joined their forces to host a webinar aiming to learn more about successful strategies in applying for citizen science projects. The invited speakers provided the audience with interesting insights, important take-aways and useful suggestions regarding successful applications. The panel of international citizen science experts, researchers and funding body representatives shared their experiences and suggested strategies.
