Public Outreach

outreach

Interaction between professional paleontologists and the public is currently very limited with public talks, popular-science articles, notifications on social media, and reportages on TV.

However, over centuries amateur researchers have contributed to science and professionals have benefitted.

The project aims to enhance communication and cooperation between public and professionals to increase public interest and visibility since paleontological data are next to everyone’s garden.

In addition, an application (FossilDiscovery) will be developed that will allow amateurs to upload fossil data and get their fossil findings identified from professionals.
