Get involved

Citizen Science

PROJECT BUILDER

The CS Center released the beta version of the CS Project Builder, an open, free and simple tool to create your own Citizen Science Data Analysis project.

Herpetology

Snake ID Challenge

Fall is here! You can take advantage of the cooler weather to test and refine your identification skills with the second phase of the SnakeID challenge.

Wild Life Research

Weasel Wanted

At various locations we have set up boxes equipped with a wildlife camera. The pictures give us an insight into the visitors of the box.

Linguistics

Project Wenker

Our first Citizen Science Project is in the field of linguistics. By transcribing and translating swiss sentences from the 1930s, you help researchers understand how Swiss German changed during the past 100 years.

Do you have a project in mind? We can help you.

We are always happy to brainstorm and discuss how we can change the world with Citizen Science! If you have an idea for a project, get in touch with us. We can help you evaluate it and potentially provide you with expertise and tools to develop, set up, and run your project.

Citizen Science «Zurich Style»

In next–generation Citizen Science projects the general public provides new and invaluable knowledge in areas from physics to linguistics to human health. Projects produce excellent science but also quality open data that can help citizens, communities and governments to assess and monitor the UN SDGs.

A Joint Initiative

The Citizen Science Center is run jointly by the University of Zurich and the ETH Zurich.

Switzerland has a deep tradition of direct democracy and participatory decision-making, and Citizen Science can be viewed in many ways as the application of direct democracy to the scientific process.
Researchers at both UZH and ETHZ have a strong track record in citizen science, participatory research, and citizen science-related fields such as artificial intelligence, social science and the law. Combining these researchers’ expertise represents a unique opportunity for synergy.
