Empowering Biodiversity Research Conference II

Empowering Biodiversity Research

Tervuren, Belgium, 24–25 May 2022.

The Empowering Biodiversity Research conference, EBR II, will take place 24–25 May 2022 at the AfricaMuseum in Tervuren. It will take you on a journey into the world of biodiversity data standards and tools and will inform you on the latest developments in the world of Biodiversity Informatics, on the state-of-the-art in initiatives like GBIF, LifeWatch ERIC, DiSSCo, etc. and how you can benefit from them.

EBR II aims to build a bridge between Biodiversity informatics and its relative “Bioinformatics” and investigate what their crossover can bring to Biodiversity Research. Genomic information meets digital taxonomy.

Want to present a poster? Submit your abstract until 31 March 2022.
