REsearch INfrastructures FOR Citizens in Europe

Project description

Minimising the knowledge gap between science and society through Citizen Science

Our civilization has benefited tremendously from fundamental science. However, the knowledge gap between research and society seems to increase, spawning misconceptions about the content, context and mission of science. The EUfunded REINFORCE project aims to engage and support more than 100 000 citizens to increase their awareness of science and their attitude towards it, eliminating anti-intellectual beliefs in society and providing citizens with the intellectual ammunition needed to become critical consumers of scientific knowledge. This goal will be achieved through four Citizen Science projects in the field of frontier Physics, where citizen scientists will be able to take part in the process of scientific discovery producing high-quality data and adding to our scientific knowledge.
