Let's co-design innovative technological services for citizen science!

Wednesday, March 10, 2021 to Thursday, March 11, 2021 14:00 - 16:30 (CET)

Join the two firsts co-design sessions organized in the Horizon2020 Cos4Cloud project framework! 

During this activity, you will enjoy fun and creative sessions while directly contributing to citizen science technologies' improvement. How? You will give your opinion and share your needs and requirements to maximize the technological services that Cos4Coud is developing. You don’t need any previous experience; only be willing to have a pleasant time with a diverse group of people interested in citizen science.

If you’re an environmental or biodiversity expert, developer, data scientist, developers or workers of citizen observatories, university professors, environmental students or professors, Cos4Cloud needs your expertise in its community of co-design!

1. Contribute to co-design MOBIS application 

MOBIS (Mobile Observation Integration Service), a service that will allow citizen scientists to customize their own project by collecting and combining all sorts of useful information from photographs or low-cost sensors linked to a mobile website or a native app platform.

  • When: 10th of March, 15:00-17:30 (CET)

  • Language: English 

  • Where: Online

  • Co-design facilitator: Science for Change, an experienced company that tackles societal challenges affecting communities using innovative techniques such as the co-design methodology and citizen science.

  • Aimed to: developers, developers from citizen observatories, phyton, R and Linux developers, front end and back office developers and mobile apps developers.

2. Contribute to co-design Cos4Bio & Cos4Env platforms 

Cos4Bio & Cos4Env are two online platforms that integrate observations on biodiversity (Cos4Bio) or environmental (Cos4Env) monitoring from various citizen observatories, potentially an enormous number of observations from citizen observatories such as Pl@ntNet, iSPot, Natusfera, Artportalen, etc.

  • When: 11th of March, 14:00-16:30 (CET)

  • Language: English 

  • Where: Online

  • Co-design facilitator: Science for Change, an experienced company that tackles societal challenges affecting communities using innovative techniques such as the co-design methodology 

  • Aimed to: environmental and biodiversity experts, developers, developers from citizen observatories, university professors, environmental students or professors.

Why participate in our co-design sessions? You will help boost citizen observatories' functionalities, such as artificial intelligence species identification, data integration from various citizen science platforms including Pl@ntNet, Natusfera, and iSpot, data combination from sensors and photos, and camera traps improvement. You also will be an active part of the open science movement: Cos4Cloud's technological services are open source and are intended to be adapted and improved by the interested community.
