CreatorBelgian Biodiversity Platform
DescriptionThe mission of the platform is to foster biodiversity research that contributes to sustainable development, by: Facilitating access to biodiversity data, science and research information; Encouraging interdisciplinary cooperation amongst scientists; Stimulating interaction between scientists, policy makers and stakeholders in biodiversity research; Advising on the designation of biodiversity research priorities; Promoting Belgian biodiversity research at international fora. The group is the national node for the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), and it offers support to researchers in developing, linking and, eventually, hosting databases. The platform also hosts several topical forums. The forums are groups of Belgian scientists interested in similar topical issues that work together to develop scientific cooperation and promote the dissemination of research results towards policy makers. As of November 2010 there were forums for invasive alien species, freshwater biodiversity, and forest biodiversity.
