On 20 and 21 May 2021, LifeWatch ERIC will be hosting the online
workshop "e-Science for NIS Research" with the support of the
ENVRI-FAIR Project. The workshop will showcase the results of four
Non-indigenous and Invasive Species (NIS) conducted over the last
eighteen months within the LifeWatch ERIC Internal Joint Initiative
Registration is compulsory and free of charge
The first day will be dedicated to the marine domain, with sessions
focusing on the long-term monitoring of hard-bottom marine communities
and marine/transitional NIS occurrence and trophic niches dynamics.
LifeWatch ERIC and Distributed Centre staff will also be presenting
workflows using photographic, metabarcoding and stable isotope tools
to extract and analyse data of different typologies from varying
The second day will be devoted to the terrestrial domain, with a
particular focus on the detection and monitoring of invaders through
remote sensing and habitat vulnerability to NIS and impact on
biotopes. Presenters will also showcase workflows involving the use of
satellite and occurrence data, combining different statistical and
machine-learning algorithms to map the distribution of invaders and
identify which habitats are most at risk.
Several round tables will enrich the workshop programme, covering hot
topics within the biodiversity and ecosystem research community such
as cooperation between Research Infrastructures, the impact of NIS on
marine ecosystems as well as their impact on economy and society,
disruptive technologies for NIS research and how open science and open
access can benefit researchers.
As a follow-up to the workshop, a hands-on training session on the use
of the four workflows and Virtual Research Environments (VRE) will be
held on 4th June, subject to sufficient interest. The full programme
