This EOSC in practice story targets three main types of users: (1) the citizen and citizen scientists who collect valuable data, (2) the researchers who use and benefit from the data collected by citizens via smartphones and sensors, and (3) software developers.

The service presented is called MOBIS, developed by DDQ: Pocket Science , a small Dutch company specialised in the development of mobile-based (citizen-) science applications with research partners worldwide. Such solution aims at solving the problem of high fragmentation in the citizen science apps ecosystem offering an integration service.

The service is available on the EOSC Portal Catalogue and Marketplace and was developed within the Cos4Cloud Project.
