Team

In our Citizen Science design studio in Vienna, Austria we collaborate to create the most advanced Citizen Science platform for providing reliable and high quality tools in a mobile world. Coming from various backgrounds, our team not only designs and develops Citizen Science applications, but also provides support and works together closely with the projects during their whole runtime.
