It was not self-evident that the FWF would become a partner for the Citizen Science Network Austria. That is why we are all the more pleased that in the FWF we have not only gained a partner with an outstanding national and international reputation, but also an active member who is involved in working groups and thus helps to create the basis for excellent research in the field of citizen science in Austria. We would like to express our sincere thanks for the support in the past years and hope for continued excellent cooperation in the future.
