EOSC IN PRACTICE STORY: Connecting researchers, developers and citizen scientists in a unique mobile app environment.


EOSC Future has released a new series of use cases to show the value of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) for research.


The cases are named EOSC in practice storiesand highlight how EOSC resources (i.e. tools or services) already existing or under development have provided practical support to researchers in their daily work. The stories also demonstrate the benefits of EOSC for a broad range of actors, often across multiple research domains. 


EOSC in Practice with Cos4Cloud 

The first EOSC in practice story is developed  within the Cos4Cloud project and targets three main types of users: (1) the citizen and citizen scientists who collect valuable data, (2) the researchers who use and benefit from the data collected by citizens via smartphones and sensors, and (3) software developers.


EOSC for citizen science

The service presented is called MOBIS, developed by DDQ: Pocket Science a small Dutch company specialised in the development of mobile-based (citizen-) science applications with research partners worldwide. Such a solution aims at solving the problem of high fragmentation in the citizen science apps ecosystem offering an integration service.


The service is available on the EOSC Portal Catalogue and Marketplace.
