 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The Life Watch e-Science and Technology Infrastructure for biodiversity data and observatories will be a large-scale European research infrastructure bringing together: -a system of marine, terrestrial and freshwater observatories; -common access to a huge amount of interlinked, distributed data from databases and monitoring sites; -computational facilities in virtual laboratories with analytical and modelling tools; -targeted user and training support and a programme for public services. The biodiversity research infrastructure will open up new and exciting research opportunities, and will help to enhance the understanding and sustainable management of our natural environment. This preparatory project brings together the interested EU Member and Associated States with the objective to prepare a cooperation agreement on the construction and maintenance of the Life Watch research infrastructure. In addition, the leading networks in biodiversity science and stakeholder institutes are preparing the organisation and logistics for the following construction phase. The current project delivers the technical, legal and financial preparations required for entering and managing the Construction Phase. A range of policy issues are resolved with respect the organisation of the distributed infrastructure, its legal implications, construction logistics, user service, cost analysis and planning. In addition the project makes the necessary preparations in the domain of risk management and quality control. The project is planned to take three years. A Policy and Science Board, populated by the representatives of fourteen potentially interested partner countries and eight cooperating scientific networks, oversees the progress of the preparations. The individual members of the Board act as the liaison with their political domains and the research communities, respectively.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Biodiversity, the variety of life on earth,is a complex system of genes, species and their interactions and is vital to our planet, the economy, health and well-being of all species. This EU-funded project to create a research infrastructure will assist researchers to improve our understanding of biodiversity and the ecosystems that support it.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The LIFEWATCH e-science and observatory infrastructure for biodiversity and ecosystem research is a collaborative project of collaborative countries that allows scientist to analyse data from research stations and databases. As such, it is enabling scientists from across Europe to work in virtual labs, sharing expertise and information regardless of where they are located. In addition, LIFEWATCH connects researchers to the wider world of policymakers, entrepreneurs, students and the general public, while supporting the decision-making process at both regional and local levels.

LIFEWATCH is providing access to integrated data and is helping to create a step change in our scientific knowledge in the understanding and management of the natural world. This is of crucial importance as healthy ecosystems provide humanity with free vital services, such as clean air, fresh water and fertile soil, and mitigate the worst effects of flooding. In addition, forest environments help control climate change by storing carbon, which they take from the atmosphere. LIFEWATCH will allow companies to enter new markets with such competitive services.

LIFEWATCH partners collated biodiversity data at monitoring sites stretching from the Arctic to the Mediterranean and from the Atlantic Ocean to the Caspian Sea. Advanced computing and other technologies can now enable scientists to study biodiversity over space and time from the molecular level to the ecosystem level. Satellite imaging and other earth observation (EO) technologies can be employed to monitor the health of natural environments, including Europe's seas, wetlands, grasslands, mountains and forests.

Large-scale data resources and advanced analytical and modelling capability available to LIFEWATCH will accelerate the development of e-science in research assisted by new analytical tools and methods.

The LIFEWATCH legacy supports highly coordinated scientific research that enables scientists to gain greater insight into biodiversity. Armed with this knowledge, decision support tools will help managers to in their choices how best to manage Europe's forests, agricultural land, water resources and marine environment. Developments in these areas will benefit both EU citizens and the natural environment on which we all depend.
