  • Workpackage leaders may also use this template as the basis for their longer (10 minute) presentation, but are encouraged to include more slides and alter the slide titles as necessary. Suggested additional topics for workpackage leaders include an overview of workpackage activities, sustainability, risks associated with their workpackage and how their workpackage activities will be linked within ViBRANT and the wider landscape of European and international biodiversity informatics projects.
  • What is Workpackage 7 about?
  • Who is involved in WP7? In the order in which they will be speaking this afternoon and the speakers who will be giving the presentations:
  • What are the major tasks and components within WP7?
  • How will the workpackage activities be linked to the wider landscape of European and international biodiversity informatics projects?
