Innovative solutions arise from the cooperation of many interested people. Open innovation refers to the opening up of innovation processes. The knowledge of citizens, patients and external experts contributes to scientific research and helps to generate innovation.
In citizen science projects, citizens formulate research questions, report observations, conduct measurements, analyze data and/or write publications. The prerequisite is that scientific criteria are met.
Med Uni Graz supports cooperation between science and society in funded projects and also promotes the involvement of children and young people.
