What is the air quality in my environment? How many butterfly species live in my garden? How do I recognise the Leiden or The Hague dialect? Do you have a question about your neighbourhood, or even the whole city? Let us know! And who knows, we can study your question together.
Science in the city
Citizen science involves residents conducting research in collaboration with scientists. To celebrate Leiden University’s 444th anniversary, we will launch a Citizen Science project.
What can you do?
Get in touch with us by email to discuss your research interests and questions with us. This can include a question, a challenge in your neighbourhood, a concern about a development in the city, or even an idea that you would like to test. Anyone can send us these questions, including residents, organizations, networks, and scientists from Leiden and The Hague. Please direct your interest and questions to email@example.com before Friday 15 March 2019.
What happens next?
The Citizen Science Lab will check all incoming emails. Some of the research questions raised will be explored together in the form of a research proposal. Together with a review panel, we will judge the proposals and at least one research proposal will be selected to be carried out. By residents together with researchers.
