Case study led by leading global institutions in the respective fields: Biodiversity

Q2 2024
  • Landscape, Monitoring and Engagement
    • Widening to public and private sectors & going global
  • Result description

    This case study provides recommendations related to Biodiversity, and is led by GBIF. In this project, the team consults community members on the development of a new FAIR data model that encompasses long-term biodiversity monitoring data from newly developing biodiversity monitoring projects around the world and makes it easier to integrate, share and reuse. The aim of the consultation is to identify improvements to data models and processes that could then in turn lead to improvements in the Darwin Core (DwC) standard and its implementation of FAIR principles.

    Problem addressed

    The recommendations contained in the CDIF will consider standards in particular domains being used in EOSC, as well as in other regions of the world.

    Who can use the result

    All scientific disciplines for which the standards are relevant.


    The recommendations are expected by the end of the project in mid-2024. A preliminary 12-month progress review was successfully completed by the project in June 2023.

    How to use the result

    The result and relevant reports will be available on project website and WorldFAIR Zenodo community
