The REINFORCE project (Research Infrastructures FOR Citizens in Europe) aims to engage and support citizens to cooperate with researchers and actively contribute in the development of new knowledge for the needs of science and society.


Citizens engagement to contribute to online frontier science

Creation of an active community of citizens who actively participate in scientific endeavors

Introduction of Responsible R&I in frontier Citizen Science Landscape

Impact assessment of frontier citizen science in science and society

Creation of a policy roadmap for other large RI willing to implement citizen science projects

Explore the potential of frontier citizen science for inclusion and diversity

Zooniverse is known as the world’s largest platform for online citizen science, allowing researchers across Europe and beyond to build and run their own projects without requiring software development expertise, at the same time giving participants the chance to focus on skills development, playing a full role in scientific exploration.


REINFORCE Citizens’ Survey helping to design targeted citizen science projects and engaging support activities

In order for scientists to design the most appropriate opportunities for citizens to contribute in science, a participatory design in citizen engagement is needed

Are you interested to learn how to introduce your students to topics such as the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN, the detection of Gravitational waves from black hole and neutron star mergers

The REINFORCE project has launched its new fully-developed website, offering a user-friendly browsing experience for the project’s target groups, including potential citizens scientists, the scientific and research community, policy makers, social innovators and entrepreneurs, and the broad public beyond the project community.
