The ENVRI community is a community of Environmental Research Infrastructures, projects, networks and other diverse stakeholders interested in environmental research infrastructure matters. The community also includes e-infrastructures supporting the Research Infrastructures in data solutions. All the RIs share the same challenges, both in their constructions and operations. The ENVRI community thus encourages a joint work to develop the synergies, learn from each other, harmonise the RI landscape, products and share best practices.
The mission of the GLOBIS-B project is to foster the global cooperation of biodiversity research infrastructures and biodiversity scientists to advance the implementation and calculation of Essential Biodiversity Variables (EBVs). The project aims to identify the required primary data, analysis tools, methodologies, and legal and technical bottlenecks to develop an agenda for research and infrastructure development to compute EBVs.
The ECOPOTENTIAL project focuses its activities and pilot actions on a targeted set of internationally recognised protected areas (PA) in Europe, European Territories and beyond, including mountain, arid and semi-arid, and coastal and marine ecosystems. Building on the knowledge gained in individual PAs, ECOPOTENTIAL addresses cross-scale ecological interactions and landscape-ecosystem dynamics at regional to continental scales, using geostatistical methods and the emerging novel approaches in Macrosystems Ecology.
The key objectives of this project are: 1) to facilitate and provide the methodological standards for the next phase of MSFD, towards coordinated approaches between MSs, by reviewing, comparing, selecting and adapting appropriate existing methodologies; 2) to focus on Mediterranean regional/subregional cooperation and standardization, taking in consideration its specificities and therefore recommend suitable approaches for this region.
