Feature introduction: Citizen Science Community Comments

Through comments, users are able to interact with the spots directly in app in realtime. Posting comments is an important tool for both users and project teams, increasing the level of activity throughout the project and to provide information or make suggestions at observations. Below every spot in the Citizen Science app, users can find a tab with the comment section for observation-related comments.

The ability to post comments on spots in the Citizen Science apps of a project is a very important feedback mechanism and results also in an exchange between user and the Citizen Science project itself. Whenever a Citizen Scientist posts a new comment at a spot or update, the original submitter of the observation is notified in the newsfeed panel, where all community activities are summarized for every user. Comments are a great tool to spark conversation and create more acitvity in the Citizen Science project, which can result in an buzzing community directly within the Citizen Science apps and interactive maps.

  • The new Horizon Europe programme supports the achievement of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), fights climate change and integrates science into society on a larger scale. It further strengthens the impact of research and innovation within the European Union and beyond and supports the collaboration between the science sector, small-medium enterprises (SME) and society.
    As an SME, we are happy to offer our know-how and services within research projects, applying for Horizon Europe grants. Read more on the Citizen Science in Horizon Europe | Partnerships & Proposals page.

  • The UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) are an essential core of many Citizen Science projects. Many of the 17 SDGs relate directly to topics in which citizen engagement plays an important role. With modern and interactive Citizen Science Apps, a broad public can actively support Sustainable Development Goals with observational data contributions and by improving the situation in one's own community.
