CITI-SENSE is a collaborative project
Call: FP7-ENV-2012.6.5.1
Starting date: 1 October 2012
Duration: 48 months
Partners organizations: 28, 12 countries
Grant agreement nº: 308524

Objective
 Develop Citizens’ Observatories and empower citizens to
–
–
–
Participate in environmental monitoring
Influence community policy & decision making
Contribute to Global Earth Observation System of
Systems (GEOSS)
R&D questions
 How to best improve urban life quality with citizens’ involvement?
 How to recruit citizens to participate in environmental governance?
 How can sensor data complement other data sources?
 How can sensors lead to a greater involvement of citizens?
 How can citizens’ data be used in science?
 How will raised citizens’ awareness of pollution affect behavior?
CITI-SENSE approach
 To answer the R&D questions, what is the CITI-SENSE
approach?
Citizens’ observatories initiatives
 Three empowerment initiatives
– Outdoor AQ
– Indoor AQ in schools
– Personal comfort in public spaces
 More than 20 citizens’ observatories
across nine cities
– Eight for outdoor AQ
– Up to 10 for indoor AQ in
schools
– Four for personal comfort in
public spaces

Citizens’ observatory central portal
 Gateway to the various citizens’ observatories
Citizens’ observatory central portal
 http://co.citi-sense.eu
– Access
to
various
citizens’
observatories
o Outdoor AQ
o Indoor AQ in schools
o Personal comfort in public spaces
o Citizens’ objective voices
– Access all project sensor data in one
interface
– Open API enables GEOSS functional
integration into citizens’ observatories
central web portal
R&D challenges
 Alignment across a variety of R&D disciplines
–
Natural science, social science, sensor technology, ICT
 Efficient dialogue with citizens
 Efficient citizens participation and empowerment
 Bridging information demand and supply
 Integration across data types and cities
 New knowledge on how urban pollution affects citizens
 Technological development
– Sensors modified for CITI-SENSE
o
Performance of most sensors is unknown
o
Long-term reliability is unknown
– Citizens’ mobile apps
– Real-time information
– Cutting edge visualization
– Innovative monitoring approach
– GEOSS integration
Our goal is to meet challenges
 Opportunity for solutions
Responsible use of air pollution
sensor data
Challenges in data quality,
interpretation and
communication
Evaluation of low-cost sensor for
critical pollutants: validation and
calibration, assessing uncertainty
Visualizations will be helpful for
making sense of data
Development of IT infrastructure
and new data streams
Big Data: expand the amount
of data/information
Integrating the data/information
with other relevant
data/information: data
assimilation
Guidance and advice on sensor/sensor platform use and data interpretation
Opportunities
Small, lower-cost sensors bring new challenges but
along with these challenges come great opportunities to
improve air quality management and public health.
Supplementing routine ambient air
monitoring networks
Monitoring personal exposure
Air quality sensors can be
coupled with physiological
sensors (heart speed, blood
pressure, respiratory rate, etc.)
3S principle: Increasing
• Sensitivity
• Selectivity
• Stability
Opportunities
Monitoring at the source
Stimulate participation and encourage the dialogue
– Gamification
– Augmented reality
Opportunities
 Cluster cooperation with four other projects
– Citclops
– COBWEB
– Omniscientis
– WeSenseIt
 All five projects focus on different environmental topics, but
share common goals
 Have common challenges
 Projects overview: http://www.citizen-obs.eu
 Knowledge from public

Side Event on Wednesday
CITIZENS OBSERVATORIES, Wednesday January 15th, 1200-1400, Room 15 – Level 1
The Citizens Observatories side event will have presentations by
representatives from five ongoing European FP7 projects in the area of
Citizens Observatories, http://www.citizen-obs.eu/
The session will be introduced by EU research programme officer, Jose
Miguel Rubio Iglesisas, from DG Research & Innovation I4, Climate Action
and Earth Observation, Earth Observation Sector. The session will be
chaired by Max Craglia, senior scientist at the European Commission Joint
Research Centre (JRC) in the Digital Earth and Reference Data Unit.
