Open-data innovations for biodiversity


Individuals and teams can submit tools and techniques that improve the access, quality, and usefulness of open biodiversity data to the open-ended competition Ebbi Nielsen Challenge.

Deadline: 14 August 2024

The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) annual incentive competition aims to recognize innovative tools, both new and existing, that leverage biodiversity data from the GBIF network to advance open science in support of research and policy. An expert jury will judge entries on their relevance, novelty, and quality to select a pool of winners to share a prize pool of up to €20,000.

Entries should benefit multiple stakeholder groups, including data users, data holders and data managers.
