We offer a monthly salary of €250 a month, which includes €50 traveling expenses a month.

PULSAQUA advises on citizen science (CS) practices, develops CS (monitoring) projects and delivers Environmental Impact Assessments together with Citizen Scientists and their resulting data. We help NGO’s, government agencies and industries to track and monitor specific desired changes that society needs to undergo, together with society. We aim to improve the state of our environment by assisting projects that aim to solve water-related issues. PULSAQUA is a start-up owned by Sandra de Vries. Projects we work on can be found here.
PULSAQUA often deploys projects together with the TU Delft Citizen Science platform WaterLab (www.onderzoekwater.nl). In the past months, the citizens of Delft have been measuring the rainfall together, in the project Delft Measures Rain. At the end of October this project will come to an end, but we would like to research the impact this project had on its participants: the citizen scientists. And we would like to use a storytelling approach for this.
