About the Ibercivis Foundation

Ibercivis is a private non-profit foundation based in Zaragoza (Spain) that promotes, participates in and organises citizen science projects in Spain and Europe. It is currently involved in 6 European and several national projects where citizens actively participate in the search for solutions to problems in their environment through science. Its board of trustees is made up of the University of Zaragoza, CSIC, CIEMAT, the Ministry of Science and Innovation, the Government of Aragon and the Zaragoza City of Knowledge Foundation.

In recent years, the Ibercivis Foundation has grown to reach a relevant position in the European citizen science scene, and its work is required in research and innovation projects where the “science with and for society” approach is important to achieve its objectives.
