Brief description of project: 
We seek to create a technological platform and tools to support research on mass populations and to support a network of research projects that share data and results. Researchers can develop research projects using the platform's services, infrastructure and tools. The platform will provide data analytics, tools to develop apps for mobile devices, tools for gamification and advanced 3D apps as well as cloud security software. The platform will be language independent but will support multiple languages in order to allow citizens to participate in research in their own language. Our platform will be based on up to date IT services and tools, social networks, smartphones, sensors and IoT –Internet of Things. Our technology is based on Big Data architecture and services as well as automated tools for data collection and will support multiple devices, sensors, and sources. We will also provide a data and meta-data repository of researches that can be use by various researchers and citizen sciences for cross disciplines analysis and new reseaches.
