2nd NMZB Forum: Application and research in dialogue

Organisation: National Biodiversity Monitoring Centre (NMZB)

About the forum

One task of the National Biodiversity Monitoring Centre (NMZB) is to support the further and new development of monitoring methods, such as recording methods and methods for analysing biodiversity data. The aim is to further develop biodiversity monitoring in the long term and to make it fit for future challenges.

The focus of the 2nd Forum of the NMZB is therefore the joint exchange with interested parties from different areas on new technologies and methods for recording and evaluating biodiversity monitoring. The following topics will be discussed in four sessions. A cross-thematic panel discussion on the necessary framework conditions for the use of new methods and technologies in biodiversity monitoring will conclude the forum. An accompanying marketplace and poster exhibition will provide insights into the activities of projects, platforms and institutions.

NFDI4Biodiversity and its partner organisations are represented in two formats:

Session: Data management

Moderation: Roland Krämer, NMZB/BfN & Dr. Ivaylo Kostadinov, GFBio e.V./NFDI4Biodiversity
