Scientific, technical and legal experts from around the world gathered at the 3rd workshop of the EU funded Horizon2020 project GLOBIS-B (“GLOBal Infrastructures for Supporting Biodiversity research”, www.globis-b.eu, Amsterdam on 20-22 March 2017).
The 21 invited scientific experts discussed requirements for developing the EBV class ‘Species traits’ which can cover for example phenology, body mass, natal dispersal distance, or migratory behavior. The 11 invited informatics experts from a global group of biodiversity and ecosystems research infrastructures discussed the intricacies of designing and deploying scientific workflows to produce EBVs data products. A team of four invited legal and policy experts worked on defining recommendations on data policies to optimize the use of data in the EBV process.
