Visions of Science

This spring the series 'Visions of Science', organized by Biblioteques de Barcelona, is dedicated to citizen science.

 

 
Citizen science consists in the involvement of volunteers in scientific research with the aim of bringing the scientific method and knowledge to the social groups. "Citizens + Researchers = Science" will present some of the most innovative projects in Catalonia in this field.
 
Born in the English speaking world, citizen science has already begun to develop in our environment. The series showcases some of the most innovative projects in Catalonia.
