About: pro-iBiosphere will prepare the ground for an integrative system for intelligent management of biodiversity knowledge

Page description: The pro-iBiosphere project has been launched for a period of two years (September 1st, 2012 to August 31st, 2014), with the goal of addressing technical and semantic interoperability challenges and preparing the ground for the creation of a system for intelligent management of biodiversity knowledge, which will improve the present system of taxonomic literature. The pro-iBiosphere project involves major European biodiversity organisations, including natural history museums, botanic gardens, and specialists in mark-up, dissemination and publishing. pro-iBiosphere is co-funded by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme – e-Infrastructures, under grant agreement no. 312848

Group profile: Biodiversity core data and information constitutes an important source of knowledge for many disciplines. In order to facilitate access to this knowledge, technical and semantic interoperability barriers need to be addressed. The aim of pro-iBiosphere is to prepare, through a coordination action, the ground for an integrative system for intelligent management of biodiversity knowledge. Once it becomes operational, the European Open Biodiversity Knowledge Management System will play a major role in facilitating the synthesis of core biodiversity data by creating an authoritative framework including, discovery of new species, naming of specimens and species, identification tools, descriptions, and various other basic types of information. It will also facilitate the acquisition of high quality biodiversity data from various sources, including legacy data; the curation of the data; and at the same time it will optimise the delivery of those data to the various users. A system that facilitates open access to taxonomic data is essential because it will allow a sustainable provision of high quality data to partners and users, including e-science infrastructure projects as well as global initiatives on biodiversity informatics.
