To increase participation, we will extend the featureset and app concept together with our partners ZAMG & LACON, who will also organize workshops and informational events in Austria. Additionally, new print material and instructions will be produced and as project partners we will extend the Citizen Science Apps with new features and functionalities, creating a social and interacitve platform for phenology observations. The project's name will change to "Naturkalender" ("Nature Calendar") durcing the relaunch.
