What are the achievements of the citizen observatories in Cos4Cloud?
Citizen science projects provide an opportunity to learn science, share knowledge, and have fun while positively impacting society; from helping researchers to get a lot of biodiversity and environmental data to influencing environmental policies or monitoring the progress of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – that aims to achieve a more sustainable future for the planet and the humanity.
The Cos4Cloud project is precisely working to boost the technology of citizen science platforms – known as citizen observatories – to increase citizen scientists’ experiences and engagement, among other things. To do this, the project relies on the participation of nine citizen observatories and ‘Do It Yourself’ initiatives focused on biodiversity and environmental monitoring that, on the one hand, will help to test the services Cos4Cloud is developing, and, on the other hand, will integrate them on their platforms to improve their functionalities.
