Brief description

With the coordinated effort of a team of project partners involving world leading Large Research Infrastructures and research institutions in the fields of frontier Physics, Citizen Science, Science Education, Social Innovation, Policy and Economic Competitiveness, REINFORCE will deliver: 

  • Four innovative Large Scale Citizen Science projects about Gravitational Wave noise hunting, Deep Sea Hunters, Search for New Particles at the LHC, and Interdisciplinary studies with Geoscience and Archaeology.
  • A citizen science engagement strategy which will provide the framework for the design and implementation of its frontier citizen science demonstrators.
  • A training scheme with specialized educational resources for educators and students in order to have a maximum impact in the target group in question.
  • The REINFORCE Citizen Science Demonstrator template that will provide the guidelines on the integration of some RRI dimensions in the development of the citizen science projects developed by the projects, their associated educational resources, as well as the structure and priorities of the training and community appreciation events that will be designed and implemented.
  • A policy roadmap, Research infrastructures for citizen science in Europe, which will provide guidelines at Policy and Stakeholder level regarding the impact of research infrastructures in engaging citizens through citizen science projects.
  • Creative methodologies which will help convey difficult scientific issues to society using art as a vehicle and will introduce sonification of data as a means to include people with visual impairment to frontier research.
