REINFORCE

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.

GOALS

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.

Hearing the universe in a spider/web: the interplay between Art and Science for the benefit of disadvantaged groups

REINFORCE aims to support citizen science, through a cross-reflection between artists and scientists, of the field of fundamental science.

The technology developed to study fundamental physics can be applied to the development of frameworks that may have a significant impact on society.

The involvement of citizens into scientific endeavors is expected to contribute to solve the big challenges of our time, such as climate change and the loss of biodiversity.
