What is Civis?

Civis is a citizen science platform developed by the Brazilian Institute of Information in Science and Technology (IBICT) using open-source code, based on EU-Citizen.Science. Our goal is to provide infrastructure and content that help broaden the understanding of citizen science, promote its use, and support the development of initiatives and the application of methodologies in this field, with a focus on Latin America and the Caribbean.
