EMBIMOS-image

EMBIMOS (EnvironMental and sustainaBility participatory InforMatiOn Systems) es un grupo de investigación interdisciplinar que se enfoca en comprender, crear e implementar sistemas de información participativos para la toma de decisiones en pro de la sostenibilidad ambiental.

Reúne a investigadores e investigadoras con amplia experiencia en ciencia ciudadana, sostenibilidad, sistemas de información ambiental e historia y comunicación de la ciencia. En el grupo convergen disciplinas como la biología, la ingeniería electrónica y ambiental, la comunicación, la historia de la ciencia, la sostenibilidad y la modelización ambiental. Las y los participantes del grupo han sido parte de la consolidación de redes regionales de ciencia ciudadana como la Asociación Europea de Ciencia Ciudadana (ECSA) y la Red Iberoamericana de Ciencia Participativa (RICAP), a las que dan apoyo activo en su funcionamiento.

Investiga sobre  el desarrollo de infraestructuras tecnológicas de ciencia ciudadana, desde una aproximación integral que involucra aspectos de gestión del conocimiento, compromiso y transformación social. Busca comprender las mejores formas de empoderar a la ciudadanía a través de la generación y uso de datos e información eficiente y oportuna, que les permita participar activamente, contribuyendo a la toma de decisiones y al desarrollo de políticas públicas.

EMBIMOS desarrolla investigación aplicada a través de proyectos en ciencia ciudadana y observatorios de ciencia ciudadana.

Como grupo de investigación opera bajo los principios de la ciencia abierta y colaborativa. Busca promover lazos de cooperación entre las diferentes hélices de participación como la sociedad civil, las organizaciones no gubernamentales, la academia, la industria y los agentes políticos.

    Projectes
    • ARSINOE - CLIMATE RESILIENT-REGIONS THROUGH SYSTEMIC SOLUTIONS AND INNOVATIONS

      Period: from 2021 to 2025
      Funding entity:
      H2020-LC-GD-2020-2
      Ref.:
      H2020-GD/0874
      Acronym:
      ARSINOE
      Amount awarded:
      572960.00€
      Resumen:

      ARSINOE shapes the pathways to resilience by bringing together Systems Innovation Approach (SIA) and the Climate Innovation Window (CIW), to build an ecosystem for climate change adaptation solutions. ARSINOE applies a three-tier, approach: (a) using SIA it integrates multi-faceted technological, digital, business, governance and environmental aspects with social innovation for the development of adaptation pathways to climate change for specific regions; (b) it links with CIW to form innovation packages by matching innovators with end-users/regions; (c) it fosters the ecosystem sustainability and growth with cross-fertilization and replication across regions and scales, at European level and beyond, using specific business models, exploitation and outreach actions.

    • MINKE - Metrology for Integrated Marine Management and Knowledge-Transfer Network

      Period: from 2021 to 2025
      Funding entity:
      H2020-INFRAIA-2020

      Resumen:

      Metrology for Integrated Marine Management and Knowledge-Transfer Network -MINKE- will integrate key European marine metrology research infrastructures, to coordinate their use and development and propose an innovative framework of “quality of oceanographic data” for the different European actors in charge of monitoring and managing the marine ecosystems. MINKE proposes a new vision in the design of marine monitoring networks considering two dimensions of data quality, accuracy and completeness, as the driving components of the quality in data acquisition. This new vision will be framed in a quintuple helix model of innovation, incorporating all the elements involved in the monitoring network design.

      Period: from 2018 to 2022
      Funding entity:
      H2020-SC5-2017-OneStageB
      Ref.:

      MONOCLE
      Amount awarded:
      472710.35€
      Resumen:

      Funded by EU H2020 MONOCLE brings together 12 partners from across Europe to create sustainable in situ observation solutions for Earth Observation (EO) of optical water quality in inland and transitional waters. Developing essential research and technology to lower the cost of acquisition, maintenance, and regular deployment of in situ sensors. The MONOCLE sensor system will establish firm links between operational Earth Observation (EO) and essential environmental monitoring in inland and transitional water bodies. These aquatic ecosystems, which are particularly vulnerable to direct human impacts, represent areas of the weakest performance in current EO capability, despite the major technological advances in recent decades. At the same time, these areas are of great economic importance and are crucial to sustainable food, energy, and clean water supply.
