Digiloglounge Digital: Digital Citizen Science


Digital Citizen Science is a promising research method for social and economic research, and it needs to be further developed and established. Work is currently underway to set up a citizens panel that will make it possible to actively participate in science – not »just« by taking part in studies, but also by allowing citizens to submit their own research questions, formulate hypotheses and discuss them on a digital participation platform.

The aim of the digilog@bw project is to shape digitization in dialog with society in order to lay the foundations for a value-oriented digital transformation. But especially in times of the pandemic and social distancing, it is a particular challenge to reach citizens and enable this dialog. We need to find new ways to engage in a fruitful exchange between science and society – under the current pandemic-related restrictions and beyond.
