LifeWatch is appointed European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC)

The EGI Foundation congratulates the LifeWatch research infrastructure for being granted the legal status of European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) by the European Commission. This measure facilitates many administrative advantages and helps to successfully implement the infrastructure project.

LifeWatch has a mission to advance the biodiversity domain and ecosystem research. The RI addresses environmental challenges by providing access to large sets of data and services to equip researchers with a state-of-the-art virtual research environment for their studies.

EGI is supporting LifeWatch with computational facilities and analytical tools needed by biodiversity scientists in their research activities.

The EGI-LifeWatch Competence Center (as part of the EGI-Engage project) helps the LifeWatch community to make the best use of EGI’s resources, facilities and expertise.
