Empowering Biodiversity Research Conference II

Five years after the "Empowering Biodiversity Research" conference that we organised in May 2015, we would like to invite you for a new journey into the world of biodiversity data standards and tools. Projects that started five years ago are about to deliver what was promised and many new biodiversity informatics related projects were launched since then. Concepts such as Open Data, Open Access and Open Science are now increasingly known across disciplines and are changing the way science is being conducted. The time to find out what happened since our last conference has come! Let's also look together at what will happen next in the world of Biodiversity Informatics! Be ready for this fascinating conference which will take place at the AfricaMuseum on 14 and 15 May 2020.

This conference is co-organised by the Belgian Biodiversity Platform, the AfricaMuseum, the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS), the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ), the Meise Botanic Garden (Meise), Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Université of Liège (ULiège), the VIB and the Belgian Science Policy Office (Belspo).

LifeWatch Belgium is one of the organizing partners, together with CETAF, DiSSCo, ELIXIR, and GBIF.
