LifeWatch ERIC Scientific Community Meeting


Rome, Italy, 27–29 May 2019. LifeWatch ERIC will hold its first Scientific Community Meeting Event, aiming at gathering the scientific Community of scientists and developers to boost discussion on the most promising lines of scientific development. The three key themes are: a) Biodiversity and Ecosystem Theory; b) Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning and Services; c) Data Analysis, Modelling and Disruptive Technologies.

Moreover, LifeWatch ERIC wants to identify the major scientific gaps to be addressed over the next decade. It will highlight key societal challenges that biodiversity and ecosystem science must address, proposing nature-based approaches for natural resource managers and decision-makers.

Working sessions will follow the Plenaries, with the aim of promoting user community involvement. In turn, LifeWatch can understand their needs in terms of services and VRE developments, to facilitate and support their research.
