Working Sessions

Working Sessions

This meeting aims to bring together the LifeWatch ERIC scientific communities of scientists and developers to generate and advance the discussion of the most promising lines of scientific development along three key themes: Biodiversity and Ecosystem Theory; Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning [and Services]; Data Analysis, Modelling & Supporting Disruptive Technologies. At the same time, LifeWatch ERIC wants to identify major gaps in scientific knowledge that need to be addressed in the next five to ten years, with particular emphasis on the key societal challenges that biodiversity and ecosystem science are required to address, and proposing nature-based approaches to natural resource managers and decision makers.
