Can academics raise money for their research by convincing members of the public to open their wallets for small donations? In more and more fields – from music to journalism to science – people are raising large sums for projects in precisely this way. The process is called crowdfunding.
This panel of experts will explain how crowdfunding works across the disciplines, provide examples of successful strategies, and answer your questions about how to create a crowdfunding campaign for your research.
