Bürger schaffen Wissen, jointly run by Wissenschaft im Dialog and the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin and funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, is the German citizen science platform. It features projects, publications, a blog, and general information on citizen science and has been active since November 2013. The task of Bürger schaffen Wissen is to further develop citizen science in Germany, to make it better known and to provide information about projects to participate in research.
The cooperation agreement signed with the Citizen Science Network Austria states that both networks or platforms will work together and support each other's activities (both nationally and internationally), that they will cooperate within the framework of the Austrian Citizen Science Conference and in the working group for quality criteria for Österreich forscht, and that they will coordinate citizen science activities in German-speaking countries with each other.
We are very pleased that we will continue the excellent cooperation of the past years in the future to further strengthen the citizen science communities in both countries.
