BioVeL follow-on

Over the coming weeks and months, and as I announced at BIH2013 I will be giving my attention to shaping a follow-on project to BioVeL.

Building infrastructure takes a long time. It is not something that can be accomplished in a single 3 year project nor by only a small group of people. It needs the attention of the community over a significant period of time.

I want to try to capitalise on the best parts of some of the previously and currently funded FP7 projects - to pull together what we have and make it work for and accessible to the whole community. As I said in my presentation at BIH2013 and as is written in the BMC Ecology paper I believe this lies in building the right Biodiversity Service Network. It also lies in connecting, strengthening and widening the community of biologists and technologists that intereact with each other.
