Current situation of the Spanish GBIF Node

Three weeks ago, we informed about the complicated situation we, the Coordination Unit, were going through as a consequence of the economic difficulties that CSIC is experiencing.  We would like to thank you all the support and affection that we have received so far. That encourages us to keep working to fulfill the objectives of GBIF: publishing data to make the best science, management, and conservation.

During these days, the worst forecasts about the future of GBIF.ES have cleared up, so we can make certain that the staff of the Coordination Unit will keep working with normality –as in the first half of the year. Some of the expenses for the next two months will keep restricted though, but we hope we can reach the usual work pace afterwards. Therefore, we can guarantee the continuity of the services we usually support –data publication, software development, training, user support etc.

This is a free access and self-guided course: tests get scored automatically, there are no support instructors nor selection process, and it can be performed at any time.
