On December 17, 2020, the OeAD Center for Citizen Science invited Young Science and Citizen Science contact persons to the 5th network meeting.

For the second time, the network meeting took place online and enjoyed great interest from contact persons from all over Austria. The meeting focussed on two topics. While the first part was dedicated to an exchange of experiences about the work of Young Science and Citizen Science contact persons in times of Corona, in the second part contact persons discussed how Citizen Science could be anchored in teacher training and further education. Reports on practical experiences at Austrian research institutions made this part of the meeting particularly inspiring and offered suggestions for future collaborations.

The meeting once again showed how important an exchange is, especially in times of Corona and how online meetings enable people to move closer together, even over spatial distances. Thanks to all participants for their keen interest and exciting inputs!
