This program aims to increase community participation in citizen science projects and for scientists and citizen scientists to work in partnership to increase scientific knowledge.
Eligible applicants must:
- Be Queensland-based with an Australian Business Number.
- Demonstrate the project need and identify how any new projects complement existing initiatives.
- Explain why the project design was chosen or to the plan and create or extend a successful project.
- Identify how the Queensland community will be recruited or involved as citizen scientists in the project.
- Identify how the performance of the project will be evaluated.
- Not place an unreasonable financial burden on citizen scientists.
- Contribute data to open access repositories when applicable or explain why this is not appropriate.
- Share results publicly—explain how results will be communicated with participants, the science community, and the wider Queensland community.
- Acknowledge the contribution of citizen scientists in any publications the applicant produces as a result of the project.
Collaboration between institutions (e.g. organisations, research institutes, media organisations, community groups, government) will be highly regarded, as will activities that involve co-contribution to the project.
Applicants or project leaders involved in creating or consulting on the Queensland Citizen Science strategy or the Queensland Citizen Science Grant Guidelines are eligible to apply for funding, but must also declare this involvement as a conflict of interest.
Recipients of other grants are eligible to apply.
