The Johannes Kepler Universität Linz is committed to the idea that in the future, we need new forms of partnerships between academia, science, and the public. As Upper Austria's largest university, we believe that building bridges between academia, science, and the public is more important than ever before. In this spirit, we are delighted to be hosting the Austrian Citizen Science Conference in 2023.
