  1. Support
  2. Ecological Observatories
  3. Workflows & VLabs
  4. Citizen Science

From EGI-ENGAGE proposal:

One of the main goals of the LifeWatch EGI CC is to capture and address the requirements of Biodiversity and Ecosystems research communities.

To achieve this the CC will

  1. deploy cloud and GPGPU based e-Infrastructure services required to support data management, data processing and modelling for Ecological Observatories,
  2. explore possibilities to increase the participation of citizens in data-intensive biodiversity research,
  3. facilitate the adoption and exploitation of the EGI infrastructure by the LifeWatch user community.
