We run the online plattform Bürger schaffen Wissen as a joint project by Wissenschaft im Dialog and the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin and funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). Bürger schaffen Wissen is the central platform for citizen science in Germany. Its main purpose is to give an overview of citizen science projects to illustrate the concept of citizen science and so increasing its visibility within the German public and discourse. Additionally, on Bürger schaffen Wissen information on how to start a citizen science project is being provided, as well as the possibility of getting in touch with different actors working with and about citizen science.
