Welcome to the Internal Joint Initiative (IJI) Publications page.

Here you will find a range of accessible papers published within the IJI and Non-indigenous & Invasive Species. The IJI was instigated by LifeWatch ERIC in 2019 to build the next generation of Virtual Research Environments (VREs).

LifeWatch ERIC Collection of Data and Services Papers

Edited by Christos Arvanitidis, Juan Miguel González-Aranda, Alberto Basset, Peter van Tienderen, Wouter Los

The Data and Services papers LifeWatch ERIC intends to publish as open access papers on the Biodiversity Data Journal web page, will describe the resources and assets developed, upgraded and used during the implementation of the flagship project of LifeWatch ERIC, the Internal Joint Initiative (IJI).

The IJI deals with the impacts of non-indigenous invasive species (NIS) on European native species, genetic diversity, habitats, ecosystem functioning and services, as well as with our current practices in environmental management and policy implementation.

This approach is entirely interdisciplinary and makes use of disruptive technologies.
