|Description|| The SOCIENTIZE project coordinated all agents involved in the citizen science process, setting the basis of this new open science paradigm and promoting the usage of science infrastructures composed by dedicated and external resources which are based on professional and amateur scientists. It set-up a network where infrastructure providers and researchers joined with the general society for recruiting volunteers that perform science at home.
Individual citizens contributed with their own knowledge and resources participating in an active way. Citizens are donors when connecting to the infrastructure their own computing resources, such us smart phones, desktop computers or other devices. Citizens are also actors when they actively participate in the scientific process, in different phases, from short and easy activities to the inception of new research lines, leading people-driven developments; or in the development of software components, in the same way of open-source communities. As we propose to open the e-science to the people, even considering the knowledge and the time of the citizen scientists as part of the resources that constitute the e-infrastructures, we call this enhanced the human-based e-infrastructure the “he-infrastructure”.
