Empowering Biodiversity Research Conference II


Empowering Biodiversity Research Conference II

Save the date: 14 - 15 May 2020 | Conference on Biodiversity Informatics | Tervuren, Belgium.  

Five years after the "Empowering Biodiversity Research" conference organized in May 2015, we would like to invite you for a new journey into the world of biodiversity data standards and tools. Projects that started five years ago are about to deliver what was promised and many new biodiversity informatics related projects have launched since then. Concepts such as Open Data, Open Access and Open Science are now increasingly recognised across disciplines and are changing the way science is conducted.

The time has come to find out what happened since our last conference! Let's also look together at what is likely to happen next in the world of Biodiversity Informatics! So save the date for this fascinating conference which will take place at the AfricaMuseum, Tervuren, Belgium, on 14 and 15 May 2020.

LifeWatch Belgium is one of the organisers. More information will soon be available on the conference website.  For any question, please contact Dimitri Brosens, Biodiversity Data Acquisition Manager of the Belgian Biodiversity Platform. 

This conference is co-organised by the Belgian Biodiversity Platform, the AfricaMuseum, the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS), the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ), the Meise Botanic Garden (Meise), Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Université of Liège (ULiège), the VIB and the Belgian Science Policy Office (Belspo).
