BioDT launches its official Community on LifeWatch ERIC platform

BioDT launches its official Community on LifeWatch ERIC platform
24 April 2023

BioDT is looking forward to welcoming researchers on the brand-new community platform, encouraging interactions and discussions on biodiversity research.

BioDT is one of the first projects to create a Working Group on the brand-new Community Platform provided by LifeWatch ERIC, which will allow us to engage researchers and other end users thanks to useful web tools such as message boards, polls, and brainstorming boards, ensuring a multi-directional space for discussion and exchange where the growing BioDT community can meet virtually.

From the official press release by LifeWatch ERIC:

The content of the Community platform will be widely shaped by its members, allowing them to create and contribute to forums, add opportunities, jobs and events of interest to the community, and hold meetings and collaborative brainstorming together with other members. These features are particularly well-suited to the needs of partners involved in European projects focused on biodiversity, who can benefit from the working groups as the perfect collaborative space.

Users are also encouraged to customise their profiles, adding information about their background, and highlight their skills in order to be found more easily within the community. These include areas such as data sciences, environmental sciences or biotechnology, allowing for a skills-based search in the database to identify potential collaboration possibilities.

Learn about upcoming events, discuss with other researchers in your domain, stimulate interactions within the community and collect feedback about your work. Sign up for the BioDT Working Group in the LifeWatch ERIC Community Platform and join our network!

LifeWatch ERIC is one of the four biodiversity Research Infrastructures involved in BioDT (GBIF, eLTER, DiSSCo and LifeWatch ERIC). These Research Infrastructures are strengthening the existing operational services and infrastructures as well as creating new opportunities for novel uses of their resources through BioDT.
