“The biophysical research community faces a daunting challenge: to weave together diverse research and monitoring networks into a fully integrated global environmental data-gathering platform. This integration is essential if scientists, decision makers, and society are to fully utilize and synthesize massive data streams in order to better understand and manage Earth´s ecosystems and their responses to global environmental change” (Collins and Childers in EOS, 2014).
This statement is part of the rationale of COOP+ project (EU H2020 Coordination and Support Action). This splinter meeting will provide a framework for the members of the consortium to discuss about the project. COOP+ will start in March 2016.
|Public information:||During this splinter meeting we will review the products created by COOPEUS project. This project can be considered the origin of COOP+. We will also discuss about the Global Challenges to be addressed by COOP+.|
