LifeWatch Italy at the ENVRI week – Lipsia, 30 January – 3 February 2023

After two years of online meetings, the last ENVRI Week of the ENVRI-FAIR project was held in person from 30 January to 3 February 2023 in Leipzig, Germany.

ENVRI Week is the annual meeting of the ENVRI-FAIR project which brings together the ENVironmental Research Infrastructures – hence the acronym: ENVRI. The aim of the project is to provide access to digital data and services in a sustainable, transparent and reliable manner, and in compliance with the FAIR principles. The process will support the integration of services offered by the ENVRI community into the European Open Science Cloud.

ENVRI Week 2023 hosted the sessions related to the ENVRI-FAIR project, during which the working groups were able to report on their progress and receive indications on future developments, several workshops, and the meeting of the Board of European Environmental Research Infrastructures (BEERI ).

The manager of LifeWatch Italy and Director of the LifeWatch ERIC Service Center Alberto Basset presented the developments of the Biodiversity and Ecology subdomain of ENVRI-FAIR and the final results of the four Use Cases.

The project is in the closing phase but leaves a solid legacy on which the next European and national projects will be able to build the future of Research Infrastructures.
