Training and educational activities have a preponderant role among the wide range of activities organized within the GBIF.ES framework. These activities (courses and workshops) are addressed to biodiversity data providers and users and they have been thought to achieve the maximum profit from a world international facility as GBIF. Outreach is also one of its cornerstones, increasing the number of members of the GBIF community, the impact of its activities, and the cost-effectiveness of the work faced by so many people in this global effort.
