To mark this moment, DiSSCo Futures brings together the project participants and stakeholders, among which scientists from the taxonomic research and bio and geo-diversity data domains, collection managers, research infrastructures and international initiatives, policy makers and businesses, to celebrate the success of this work and plan the next steps of the DiSSCo common research infrastructure.
