The vision of an Open Biodiversity Knowledge Management System (OBKMS) is providing people and computers with free and open access to all digitally managed knowledge and information (as well as underlying research data), in a system that allows continuous collaborative review and improvement.

The goal is to allow scientists as well as the entire society to respond more effectively to present and future challenges related to biodiversity. It will support professional evidence-based policy advice as well as informed citizen participation in political decisions.
