The e-Biodiversity Research Institute has branches distributed throughout Italy, focusing on the construction of a functional backbone and seeks to reinforce integrated scientific research into biodiversity. The e-Biodiversity Research Institute of LifeWatch-ITA is organised into four thematic centres: Biomolecular, Collections, Interactions and Mediterranean.

The Service Centre is part of the Common Facilities of European LifeWatch, and is responsible for the communication activities of the LifeWatch infrastructure in general, as well as the active involvement of the European scientific community in LifeWatch and the provision of services to users. At the national level, it plays the same role, as it is a core component of the e–Biodiversity Research Institute of LifeWatch-ITA.
