E-seminar : Data Exchange for Biodiversity Conservation in Freshwater Ecosystems : Introducing the BioFresh Platform and Data Portal
If you are working on freshwater ecosystems, I believe you would be interested in learning more about the BioFresh data-portal that aims to collect freshwater biodiversity data andcreate an on-line open-access data portalfor scientists, policy makers, NGOs, businesses and the public to use. It will in support scientists in their work by highlighting further research needs which eventually feeds into the support of conservation policies.
The portal unites geo-spatial information of freshwater species with the aim to help scientists to advertise and publish their datasets and to provide tools for the discovery, integration and analysis of open and freely accessible freshwater biodiversity data. This will eventually help to strengthen conservation policy.
The E-seminar takes place on Thursday, November 28 from 14:00 to 15:00CET.
