LifeWatch ERIC needs to boost its construction and to engage users in developing their research activities into the Virtual Research Environments of the e-Science Infrastructures, by clearly demonstrating and documenting the added value these new technologies bring to address challenging hot topics.

LifeWatch ERIC has started an Internal Joint Initiative with the exact aim of addressing these needs and reinforcing the positioning of LifeWatch ERIC within the biodiversity and ecosystem scientific community. As a subject for the demonstration case, LifeWatch ERIC has selected non-indigenous and invasive species (NIS).

If you are interested in the IJI and want to join us on the validation cases, just drop us an e-mail service.centre[at]

This magazine recounts in accessible, non-scientific terms how five validation cases contributed to the development of Tesseract, a more potent web-based virtual laboratory than has been available to date. The free availability of these technologies and e-Tools to audiences beyond the biodiversity and ecosystem scientific community will greatly enhance our capacity to make informed decisions about how to achieve sustainable development in our time.
