Bringing More People To The Table - Can Crowdfunding Increase The Public's Appetite For Research?

Crowdfunding is defined as raising small amounts of money from many individuals to help achieve a goal. The process has helped kick-start everything from film projects, to board games, to, believe it or not, a potato salad. Crowdfunding is now emerging as way to fund research, engage communities and carry out knowledge translation. Researchers around the world, from a smorgasbord of fields, are sharing their stories and communities are directly supporting research that matters to them. Find out how crowdfunding works, ingredients of a successful campaign, and how it fits within the existing funding and science communication ecosystem.
