On 24 June, iSGTW reported on "citizen cyberspace," volunteers participating in on-line science projects.

What's happened since then?

The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), the University of Geneva (UNIGE), and the European Organization for Nuclear Research, (CERN) have formally agreed to collaborate on a Citizen Cyberscience Center Project, to be hosted at UNITAR offices at CERN.

The goal is to provide scientists with an inexpensive form of distributed computing power that is complementary to grid technology - as seen in such processing-intensive problems as the LHC@home project or the "Africa@home" project.
