The MICS platform is currently undergoing internal testing and cannot yet be shared or used externally. We are sorry about that. We will start external testing in April at the Engaging CitSci2022 Conference in Denmark.

Meanwhile, if useful, we can share the more than 200 variables that the platform uses, whose values are collected via forms of questions and answers. Let us know if you want us to share the full set of variables. And let us know in case you want to be involved as one of our beta testers.

"Like national presidencies, European Union framework research programmes have a fixed term in which they can execute their agenda — bolstering the economy, improving sustainability and so on. How well they do is best assessed in retrospect.

The current scheme, Horizon 2020, is the world’s biggest multinational research programme, having distributed €74 billion (US$90 billion) to more than 150,000 scientists participating in 31,000 projects or grants. When it ends this year, how will it be judged?" 

Nature 588, 371 (2020), DOI: 

MICS is part of the answer.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824711.
