PlanetWatch: Citizen Science on Steroids

by Claudio Parrinello


PlanetWatch, the first CERN spinoff company in the blockchain world, aims at disrupting environmental monitoring on a global scale by leveraging advanced technologies and the power of communities to generate and analyse science/business-grade environmental datasets. PlanetWatch's distinctive feature is its blockchain-based data recording, tracking and incentive scheme. With over 44,000 connected air quality sensors worldwide, the project is experiencing explosive growth and we are keen to further develop our collaboration with CERN by leveraging additional technology transfer opportunities.

A former research physicist, international consultant and Head of Knowledge & Technology Transfer at CERN, Claudio became a tech entrepreneur ten years ago. He cofounded Terabee, a successful sensor company leveraging CERN technology. In the last five years, he focused on blockchain technologies, leading to the foundation of PlanetWatch, a CERN spinoff company which decentralizes and incentivizes environmental monitoring. Claudio is PlanetWatch's CEO and Cofounder.
