Welcome to the second edition of the LifeWatch ERIC newsletter. Covering major events from June to July, the lead story is an account of the International Data FAIRness Summer School, conducted in Lecce, Italy from 1-5 July. A successful week that trained 25 more researchers from across Europe on how to find, accces, interoperate and re-use data and metadata.
Then there's a new Thematic Centre for Moutain Ecosystem Services, Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Spain, a CEO visit to Belgium, a welcome to Portugal on joining LifeWatch ERIC, 50 years of the Marine Biology Station Piran in Slovenia, stronger ties with Latin America and the Caribbean through the EU-CELAC working group, and a great day on ERDF in Andalusia. Stories that reflect the length and breadth of the LifeWatch ERIC scientific community.
