Ibercivis aims to promote public engagement in science by supporting citizen science experiments and funding a wide range of projects, mainly at scientific, economic, educational and policy levels. Ibercivis activities include research support (software development, middleware adaptation or hardware hosting), scientific communication and engagement plans (dissemination, outreach and inreach), and participatory experiment management (design and production, competitive funding calls, public spaces, or education programmes).
Ibercivis has carried out more than 40 participatory experiments, involving over 50.000 volunteers, in a wide range of knowledge areas (fundamental physics, biotechnology, digital social sciences, humanities, and so on). In addition to publications and doctoral theses, participatory policy agendas linked with citizen science have been produced.
