Citizen Science innovation

Citizen science – also known as participatory science- creates a bridge between science and society that, when coupled with emerging technologies, expands the frontiers of research and public engagement. It highlights collaborative intelligence and co-creation to facilitate scientific and community-based solutions.

Cos4Cloud relies on the participation of a network of 9 citizen observatories focused on biodiversity and the environment domain. These platforms will be responsible for testing the different services with their users.
The citizen science infrastructures in Europe take the name of citizen observatories. The name it comes out of the world of earth observations data.
