The Pädagogische Hochschule Oberösterreich is a tertiary education and research institution of the federal government and offers scientifically sound and professionally related training, advanced training and further education for teachers. Of the approximately 5,500 students, more than half are completing their initial training as educators (elementary education, primary education, secondary general education/vocational education). The remaining 50% are already trained teachers who complete one-year or multi-year courses and master's courses for additional professionalisation. In addition, the PH Oberösterreich records more than 60,000 registrations for advanced training events every year.
"10 years of senseBox" is the title of the next presentation in our Citizen Science Seminar-series. You can find all the details about this presentation and the link to the free registration in the current blog post.
26 short articles about the ambition and meaning of citizen science are waiting for you in the new blog post. All of them were written in the course of the Austrian Citizen Science Conference 2020. We look forward to numerous readers!

Johannes Kepler University Linz, founded in 1966, is with its four faculties and three schools a broad-based university with an overall focus on technology. The understanding of technology is inter- and transdisciplinary and forward-looking. It is based on a strong foundation in the fields of technology, science, economics, law and medicine that is unique in its interplay. The JKU sees itself as a regionally rooted and at the same time internationally oriented university. For its students, the JKU has often taken on a pioneering role in the past – for example, with Austria’s very first degree programmes in computer science and mechatronics – and today’s nearly 23,000 students are offered a wide range of studies at the highest level on a beautiful campus.
In addition to the excellent basic research, which has been widely acknowledged, the transfer of knowledge into business and society has been a major concern for the JKU from the outset. For example, the Institute Integriert Studieren has been carrying out citizen science projects together with non-professionals for many years, in which developments in the field of Assistive Technologies are promoted. Activities in the field of Citizen Science are constantly being expanded.
