DI4R2018 opens in Lisbon with fascinating keynotes

Dalia A. Conde of Species360 spoke about mapping species knowledge, explaining the value of data and digital infrastructure to address the extinction crisis. We are currently facing an extinction rate 100 times the background or ‘normal’ rate. Dalia spoke passionately about collecting data in the field (or jungle!), curating and classifying it, bringing together databases to map knowledge and highlight patterns – to drive decision making. As Dalia summed up, the good news is this crisis is created by mankind – which means we are in a position to solve it!

These keynotes expressed very well the societal value of the diverse research projects supported by Europe’s e-infrastructures, their data and computing challenges – and the opportunity the DI4R conference offers for the organisers to better understand user requirements and support in the most integrated way.
