LifeWatch is the European e-Science infrastructure for biodiversity and ecosystem research meant to provide advanced capabilities for research on the complex biodiversity system. The term ‘research infrastructure' refers strategic installation at european/international level supplying facilities, resources and related services to the scientific and other user's communities to conduct top-level activities in their respective field of science. On the top of that, e-Science infrastructures capitalise existing resources and data from physical infrastrutures, distributed centres and signle research groups. The capabilities offered by the LifeWatch, as a e-Science infrastructure, allow users to tackle the big basic questions in biodiversity, as well to address the urgent societal challenges concerning biodiversity, ecosystems and other crosscutting issues.
