[CALL] Sparkling Science


Sparkling Science has set itself the target of connecting high quality research directly with the promotion of junior researchers and to increase young people’s interest in research by supporting ambitious scientific cooperation projects between research institutions and schools.

The aim of the initiative is to create a double added value for research and education: On the part of research innovative scientific findings will be gained. On the part of education close contacts with the science system will be established and schoolchildren will get the opportunity to get in direct contact with state-of-the-art knowledge at school already. This is enabled by means of Citizen Science cooperations.

Sparkling Science only supports projects,

  • that take into account the state-of-the-art in science
  • in which schoolchildren work side by side with researchers and make contributions that are relevant for the achievement of the research goals
  • in which the contributions of the schoolchildren are embedded so neatly that the project results comply with the valid scientific quality standards.

Project has to be finished until end of 2019!
