Nora Escribano becomes first Spaniard to win GBIF Young Researchers Award

Nora Escribano, a Ph.D candidate at the University of Navarra (UNAV), has been named as one of two recipients of the 2017 GBIF Young Researchers Award. Escribano and her co-recipient, Brazilian graduate student Itanna Oliveira, will each receive a €5,000 prize and recognition at GBIF’s 24th governing board in Helsinki on 26 Sept 2017. This year’s award specifically called for the mobilization and publication of exemplary sampling-event datasets from ecological research. Escribano’s submission comprises a portion of the dataset flowing from the Hydrographical Confederation of the Ebro, a network originally established to fulfill the requirements of the European Water Framework Directive. In GBIF Spain are very proud of Nora and feel very attached to her work. Her research represents the next in a long series of collaborations between the University of Navarra Museum of Zoology and GBIF Spain, as MZNA representatives have actively supported the activities of GBIF Spain and shared data through GBIF for many years.

Staff from GBIF participants in Colombia, Argentina, Mexico and Spain will come together for initial in-person instruction about community-based monitoring. Together, they’ll explore theory and practice while learning how to design a participatory monitoring plan, develop shared methodologies for collaborations between scientists and communities, select practices and technologies that ensure high-quality data and information management and monitor and evaluate the impact of such projects.

Forms for registration and more information of interest, can be found at the following link: https://www.sibcolombia.net/curso-de-monitoreo-participativo-en-biodiversidad/

GBIF.ES Workshop: Record and Manage Observations From Nature Using Natusfera

Subscription period is now open for the GBIF.ES Workshop: Record and Manage Observations From Nature Using Natusfera that will take place in October 5th, 2017 in the computing facility of the Royal Botanic Garden (CSIC) of Madrid. This training event is aimed at managers and participants of nature associations, teachers in environmental sciences, environmental technicians, and any amateur or professional who wants to learn or share their observations of biodiversity. It will be structured in four modules that include notions about citizen science, the GBIF network, generalities about Natusfera and its main functionalities: observations, species, projects, places, guides and people. In addition, successful experiences of projects using Natusfera will be presented. The practical session will consist of recording observations in the Royal Botanic Garden, their synchronization and subsequent revision. Finally we will give an overview of the current potential of this tool showing how to import the observations of Natusfera in a GIS.

The subscription form is available online and must be submitted before September the 8th.
