In September, part of the INSIGNIA team attended the 6th Citizen Science Conference, which was held online this year. Public participation in science projects was intensively discussed and as INSIGNIA is a #citizenscience project, we presented it through a poster to the audience. At the end of the conference, the participants had the chance to vote for their favourite project poster and as it turned out, for most of them, the INSIGNIA poster was the number one 😊🎉.
Thanks to all who voted for us.

Bienen produzieren nicht nur Honig, sondern liefern auch wertvolle Daten für die Umweltforschung. Wie, das erklärt Robert Brodschneider, Bienenforscher an der Uni Graz. Im EU-Projekt INSIGNIA - Insignia-bee - arbeitet Robert auch gemeinsam mit (Hobby-)ImkerInnen, als „Citizen Scientists".
Mehr dieser Wissenschafts-Videos gibt´s übrigens unter der Marke "letsdogabout.science" bei Helmut Jungwirth 👍😁.

New popular article in Austria's biggest beekeeping magazine "Bienen aktuell" on the Austrian INSIGNIA results from 2019 is out now. In 2019, 5 citizen scientists with 3 hives each participated.
We found that APIStrips together with beebread are the most promising matrices for detecting pesticides in beehives. Further, we've chosen APIStrips for 2020, as they turned out to be more user-friendly.
A total of 84 different substances were found in Austrian samples.
Let's see what 2020 samples from 9 beekeepers with 2 hives each will reveal.
