Call for subcontracting two extra Citizen Science experiments

Socientize is looking for two subcontracted citizen science applications to be included in the project's experiments portfolio. Proposals are open to both academic or industrial organizations.

Also, we are open to any kind of participatory experiment requiring large volunteers participation using ICT tools such us volunteer computing, volunteer sensing or volunteer thinking. The two subcontrated applications will be published, executed and evaluated in order to increase the impact of Socientize project through new user communities, new technologies, new scientific results, or new learning experiences. Each subcontractor will be granted with 8.000 euros covering their personnel effort as well as interconnection and usage support.

Subcontractors are expected to develop their application and to contribute in the integration and dissemination with the Socientize team. Candidates will be evaluated by the consortium and External Advisory Board members in base of their scientific, social and technological interest for the project.

Successful applicants will be invited to join the Socientize project as subcontractors, following the rules paid out by the European Commission for subcontracts in Seventh Framework projects.
