Participant Requirements und Costs

Researchers from all disciplines as well as practitioners in the field of citizen science are invited to apply. Primarily, the Winter School is designed for doctoral students and postdocs. We welcome applications from all European universities. We strive for a diverse group of participants with different disciplinary backgrounds, a keen interest in research with societal relevance and new ways to interact with (non-academic) citizens. Sessions will be conducted in English, therefore fluency in both spoken and written English is essential. Since some parts of the program may be held in German, (passive) knowledge of German is an asset.

Participation Costs: CHF 200 per participant (regular fee, apply by 15 October),  CHF 180 early bird fee (apply by 1 October). Participants may apply for a reduced fee of CHF 100. The fee covers course materials as well as meals and snacks from 12-17 January 2020 (Sunday night to Friday afternoon). For international participants, the fee includes accommodation. Travel expenses to and from Zurich and any additional social activities undertaken will have to be covered by the participants.
