SURVEY RESULTS: Harnessing Biodiversity Collections Data for Addressing National Challenges

Results are now available for this survey, initiated on 7 February 2018, that was intended to elicit information for a stakeholder vision of how to maximize the value of biodiversity collections data for collections management, research and education in the future. BCoN is coordinating the development of this vision in response to requests from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and others to inform the development of a new funding program to succeed NSF’s current Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections (ADBC) program. The effort will culminate in a workshop in October 2018 where we will consolidate the feedback into a strategic plan for 2020-2030. The strategic plan, to be issued in early 2019, will be available for public comment and modified in response to comments made before it is finalized.
