SFC Path

SFC was born in 2019 as a result of the European project D-NOSES for the monitoring of odour pollution through citizen science. Since then, SFC has positioned itself at a European level as an expert in citizen science and collaborative research, thanks to the participation in different European projects and our interdisciplinary team.

We co-create with all parts of society

The overlapping shapes of our logo speak of the collaboration between a multitude of diverse people, as occurs in our projects. These shapes are not perfect, just like the encounters between the elements of the logo: we are not afraid of imperfection, it is what makes us who we are and gives us the value we have in society. It shows fullness and voids, which speak of open science and creative thinking, and also give the sensation of depth, of how we delve into the topics we work on, and how we involve citizens from the roots.

We contribute to solving problems.

How? We have a superpower.

At Science for Change, we have developed our own, inclusive and highly replicable methodology, which is applicable to any knowledge field. It allows us to engage various stakeholders to co-create solutions and make collective decisions. Through our methodology, we guide you throughout the entire process, providing support in the phases you require. We adapt to your needs—when, how, and where you need us.

We transform obstacles into opportunities.
Our methodology is your common thread.
