Organisational unit: Team
The Open science lab for biodiversity offers technical support to researchers of projects in which it participates (such as LifeWatch, TrIAS and the Belgian Biodiversity Platform). This support is mainly focused on open data publication and research software development. Its approach is open by default, international, and community-oriented, with the goal of making biodiversity research more efficient and reproducible. As incubator this team tests and applies new tools and methods, and teaches those via tutorials and training events, aiming to increase the self-reliance of researchers.
