What are the Citizens’ Observatories projects?

COBWEB is one of five Citizens' Observatories Projects funded under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP 7) in the Environment theme: “Developing community-based environmental systems using innovative and novel earth observations applications”. 

Started in autumn 2012, the programme is designed to respond to Europe's employment needs, competitiveness and quality of life.

The projects all aim at developing novel technologies and applications in the domain of Earth Observation, exploring the new possibilities offered by portable devices such as smartphones and tablets.
