EMODnet Biology has announced a call for proposals to help increase the amount of data made available and to cover existing geographical, temporal and/or taxonomic data gaps. Successful proposals will receive grants to attend the EMODnet Biology data workshop in 2020, and will also cover the necessary resources for describing and processing the chosen dataset(s), standardising and publishing them in EMODnet Biology.
EMODnet Biology is comprised of 23 organisations and coordinated by EuroMarine Member Organisation the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ). The goal of this consortium is to expand our current understanding of ecosystem functioning by "narrowing the current knowledge gaps, unlocking long-term series of curated and QC-ed biological datasets, producing end-user led data products from these data, and making both data and products available in interoperable formats through the web portal."
