Ibercivis is a non-for-profit foundation devoted to citizen science in Spain, which has deployed over 60 citizen science experiments, that allow society to participate in scientific research directly and in real time, supporting the research groups with hardware and software development. The foundation runs the Spanish portal Observatory of Citizen Science, is part of the steering committee of the European Citizen Science Association and has been working on enabling general public engagement in science through various European and community projects at local, national and international levels, such as the European Socientize Project.
