There are many crowdfunding platforms, and for science, but the all-volunteer SciFund Challenge leads the pack. Click through slides and videos on the left to view example projects.
The one secret to SciFund’s success: public engagement first and foremost. Researchers are trained to open science with every tweet, update, blog post, and interview.
SciFund and the Open Science Federation are both nonprofit, open science experiments. Our volunteers give hundreds of hours per year since 2012 to develop, host, and support SciFund’s network of researcher blogs, federated with the many other sites we host.
