The crowdfunding platform “wemakeit” offers with its Science Booster channel young and innovative scientists the opportunity to formulate their first scientific ideas and explain them to a wider audience. This initiative on Switzerland’s largest crowdfunding platform was supported by the Gebert Rüf Stiftung. An unconventional support for innovative research ideas.
Over the past 4 years, the Science Booster channel has helped raise over 1 million Swiss francs for science projects. Because science can and should be communicated with a lay audience, and all citizen should be involved.
Participation is open to everyone in Switzerland, Austria and Germany and can be in any scientific discipline.
