Dear community,


I’m thrilled to bring your attention to a significant milestone of our project and an excellent opportunity for the citizen science community. Please  save the date because on 10 January 2023, at 12:00 noon CET we will launch the 1st IMPETUS Open Call!

In a nutshell, it is a two-way call: on one track, we will look for new and ongoing citizen science initiatives; on the other, the European Union Prize for Citizen Science will look for outstanding citizen science projects.

IMPETUS will provide the selected proposals with financial, mentoring and training support. A kickstarting grant will give €20K to new projects and a sustaining grant of €10K to ongoing ones! IMPETUS will also look for outstanding citizen science projects and give them recognition through the European Prize for Citizen Science: three prizes plus honorary mentions. One Grand Prize of €60K, a Diversity and Collaboration Award of €20K and a Digital Communities Award of €20K!  

All the details, FAQ, forms and application information will be available on 10 January at 12:00 noon CET on .


We will need you to spread the word among your  communities and networks! In the meantime, you can visit and pencil in the date!
