The scope of the COST Action MOBILISE is to build up a cooperative, inclusive, bottom-up and responsive network with active involvement of European stakeholders to support research for biodiversity informatics. MOBILISE will facilitate knowledge and technology transfer across stakeholders, bridging the gap between biodiversity and geoscience research and information technology best practices.
MOBILISE is a crucial networking and capacity building tool that supports the overarching DiSSCo development Programme and ensures equal spread of the benefits across the European continent.
