During 2017, Spain has catalogued 177 citizen science projects and actors distributed throughout the country and covering a wide range of branches of science. This set, although still incomplete, gives an idea of the multitude of initiatives that exist in Spain. The impact of citizen science on publications continues to grow globally and in Spain, with a sustained and notable increase in decentralized development, which reinforces the idea of methodology applicable to various disciplines. The impacts are also educational, social and economic, such as show the observatory's own data and other sources of information such as interviews with experts or the open work. The project co-financed by the FECYT has served to promote coordination between citizen science in Spain. Mailing lists have been set up, popular articles are published weekly (over 60) and 8 #citscichates have been organised this year. The portal brings together resources of public utility, including information, guides and resources. It serves as a showcase for all the experiments, developers, researchers and other facilitators of citizen science in Spain. The 2016 Report was welcomed by many communities. Likewise, the 2017 Report is published in December in open format, so that anyone who wants to contribute or suggest any improvement can do so before its final publication in January 2017.
