Citizen Researcher – Contribute to Research

Become A Citizen Researcher, and Contribute To Research

Register with us as we build the first digital platform for Public Participation in NYUAD research

What is Citizen Researcher?

Citizen Researcher engages public participants in NYUAD research across the disciplines of science, social science, engineering, arts, and humanities. 
Citizen Researcher was inspired by the global movement of Citizen Science. Driven by the mutual benefit that can exist when professional researchers and members of the public work alongside one another, we developed Citizen Researcher so that members of the public can take part in NYUAD research. With Citizen Researcher, members of the public can gain new research skills from their participation, and research studies reach their goals at a much faster rate thanks to participant contribution.

What is the aim of Citizen Researcher?

The aim of Citizen Researcher is to remove the misconception that research can only be done by professionals, in a professional setting.
