Citizen Science Network

Citizen Science at SDU


The Citizen Science Network at SDU is anchored at all Faculties and in the Library as well as Odense University Hospital. The overall goals are:


  • To bring citizens closer to science – and scientists closer to society
  • To broker knowledge sharing about Citizen Science – internally and externally
  • To open the research process for all citizens across all levels of education and social groups through communication, education and learning

The Network supports and consolidates the SDU strategy of “doing something worth doing, for society, with society” and is working to attract and maintain present and future generations of learners and citizen scientists. The task of the Network is to create social impact by (1) initiating projects aimed at dissolving traditional divisions between research professional, Faculties and the other links in the chain of education and (2) initiating projects in collaboration with the public including new and established media. Thus the Network aims to support relevant research for and with citizens of high quality and in that way not only differentiate SDU and OUH as institutions but also aims to strengthen the status and legitimacy of research in society including public debate in the media an amongst politicians.
