Internal joint initiative

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]lifewatch.eu.

Dahlem-Type workshop

A Dahlem-type Workshop is defined as a quest for knowledge through an interdisciplinary communication process aimed at expanding the boundaries of current knowledge, addressing high-priority problems, identifying gaps in knowledge, posing questions aimed at directing future inquiries, and suggesting innovative approaches for solutions. 

The choice of the Dahlem-type workshop stems from the desire of the infrastructure to use the most participative interdisciplinary approach in the search for new perspectives to drive the international research agenda on NIS and to involve relevant communities in the development of validation cases. For this reason, experts from different domains - from scientists working in the field of NIS, to ICT specialists and bio-informaticians - gathered to select the most promising research and management questions, identify the resources and tools available and specify those to be developed.

LifeWatch ERIC organised two Dahlem-type Workshops in the framework of the Internal Joint Initiative:

1st Dahlem-type Workshop | Seville, 14-18/10/2019

2nd Dahlem Type Workshop | Rome, 02-06/12/2019
