The BID community relies on the expertise residing in the GBIF network to support successful implementation of projects funded by the programme.
BID grantees communicate with each other, as well as mentors, Secretariat staff and others from the GBIF network, through a public mailing list that provides an open forum for discussion and problem-solving. They can gain access to key documents like reporting templates, communications guidelines and other relevant materials to support their BID-funded projects.
Community members also come together for workshops, mentoring and other networking opportunities intended to create lasting collaborations and enrich the skills and careers of all involved.
The people of the BID community are biodiversity informatics practitioners committed to open and transparency in biodiversity data around the world.
This programme is funded by the European Union.
