The ultimate aim of this COST Action, MOBILISE, is to build up a cooperative, inclusive, bottom-up and responsive network with active involvement of European stakeholders to support research for biodiversity and geodiversity informatics. MOBILISE will facilitate knowledge and technology transfer across stakeholders, bridging the gaps between biodiversity and geodiversity research and information technology best practices.
The COST Action MOBILISE will:
- Facilitate the transfer of knowledge and technology between researchers, domain specialists, data aggregators and industry by networking activities, events, workshops and trainings (“Open to the world”),
- Promote the development of innovative techniques and coordinated prioritisation to increase efficiency of large scale collection digitisation and mobilisation (“Open innovation”),
- Raise awareness about the need in science and society that, apart from physical access, sustainable data access infrastructures are an integral component of biodiversity research (“Open access”).
