On 4th December 2014 over 130 delegates from across Europe gathered in Brussels for the Citizens’ Observatories: Empowering European Society, an event organised by the European Commission, and the five Citizens Observatories projects.
The COBWEB: Citizen Observatory Web project team are delighted to announce that booking is now open for the "Citizens' Observatories: Empowering European Society", which is being organised by the European Commission, in collaboration with the five Citizens' Observatories projects including COBWEB. The event will take place at the Management Centre Europe, in Brussels, on 4th December 2014.
This week COBWEB officially launches its call for co-design and field testing projects in the Dyfi Biosphere area. This is an exciting phase of the project as it provides opportunities for small groups that are already key contributors and representatives of the local community to run discreet projects that will contribute to the development, pilot data collection and, hopefully, the uptake of COBWEB project outputs.
The COBWEB Team are excited to announce our forthcoming half day workshop in Machynlleth on 20th May 2014.
The event, which has been organised by members of the COBWEB project from EcoDyfi, is open to oragnisations in an environmental field, or those working with people who could potentially collect data for the COBWEB project - volunteers, students, organisational members, visitors and local people.
In June members of the COBWEB team will be running an AGILE & COBWEB Workshop - "Citizen Science, Quality and Standards" which will take place on 3rd June 2014, back to back with AGILE 2014 in Castellón, Spain.
Those interested in the technologies and standards-based approaches used by COBWEB will be interested to hear that last week Bart De Lathouwer, from COBWEB partner OGC, attended the ENVIP-2013 (Environmental Information Systems and Services - Infrastructures and Platforms 2013) workshop, part of ISESS 2013 – the International Symposium on Environmental Software Systems (9th – 11th October 2013) in Neusiedl am See, Austria.
