Eurice Project INCREASE Awarded with EU Prize for Citizen Science 2024

The European Commission has awarded INCREASE the "Grand Prize" of the EU Prize for Citizen Science 2024. Endowed with 60,000 EUR, the Prize recognises the project's impact and outstanding achievements in contributing to forging a pluralistic, inclusive, and sustainable society in Europe, and advancing our knowledge through the empowerment of civil society.

INCREASE project coordinator, Professor Roberto Papa from the Polytechnic University of Marche, Italy, expressed his gratitude, saying: "We are thrilled, honoured, and grateful to the European Commission and the Prize Committee for their recognition of our work. Their spotlight on the importance of citizen involvement in science is a testament to our shared vision of shaping the future of our societies together".

Selected by an independent jury of experts, the winners of this second edition of the EU Prize for Citizen Science were officially announced today.

Winning this prestigious prize was made possible by the immense commitment, motivation, and dedication of thousands of European citizen scientists involved in the INCREASE project, for which the INCREASE team are incredibly grateful.

The prize money will be used to expand the INCREASE Citizen Science app with new functionalities and to reinforce communication measures, such as developing videos showcasing the experiment's results in plain language, events, or toolkits for schools.

The EU Prize for Citizen Science is funded under Horizon Europe, the EU research and innovation programme (2021-2027). It is run by the EU-funded project IMPETUS, which is managed by the European Research Executive Agency (REA).
