The pro-iBiosphere project
supported by the European Commission (DG CONNECT) through its FP7 research funding programme has the pleasure to invite you to join its Final Event.
During its two-year duration, pro-iBiosphere contributed to making fundamental biodiversity data digital, open and re-usable. The achievements of the project will be presented in a series of activities
(workshops, trainings, demonstrations and a Final Conference) that will take place from Tuesday the 10th to Thursday the 12th of June 2014 at the Bouchout Castle in the Botanic Garden Meise, in Meise (Brussels), Belgium.
The event wiki page here
has been recently updated with additional information on the different series of activities organised and the Final Conference agenda
now comprises worldwide high-level speakers, including (i) officials from the European Commission DG Connect, the US National Academy of Sciences, (ii) representatives from botanic gardens, natural museums, other biodiversity initiatives and (iii) experts or (iv) researchers specialized in biodiversity informatics, environmental/natural science.
One of the key objectives of these series of events is to provide key recommendations and inputs from biodiversity experts for the preparation of the next WP 2016-2017 as specifically asked by the European Commission.
The number of registered attendees has already reached a good level of participation, in this context, if you plan to attend and have not yet registered, we can only recommend you do to it as soon as possible here
(due to room capacity constraints).
