Title: Hellenic Network for Biodiversity Research: HELBIONET


1
Hellenic Network for Biodiversity Research
HELBIONET
  • Proposal submitted to the GSRT in the context of
    the ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research
    Infrastructures) platform
  • In support of the LIFEWATCH ESFRI large
    Infrastructure
  • Under the auspices of Institute of Marine
    Biology and Genetics (Director/Coordinator Dr.
    Antonios Magoulas)
  • By Dr. Christos Arvanitidis (project manager)

HELBIONET Questionnaire Training trip, Greece,
April, February, 12-16, 2010

Why IMBG?
Overall objective The analysis of the diversity
of marine life at all levels of biological
organisation, from the gene to the ecosystem.
This multidisciplinary approach besides having
a basic research interest, has important
implications for applied sectors, such as
environmental protection, genetic improvement in
aquaculture, and prediction of the responses of
the ecosystem to anthropogenic and natural
changes.

IMBG Evaluation 2005
  • The Institute of Marine Biology and Genetics was
    in general found to be of very high standard,
    ranking amongst the best in Europe
  • World-class innovation and leading-edge science
    was being applied by the research teams within
    the Institute of Marine Biology and Genetics
  • In population genetics and its application, the
    institute is clearly at the cutting edge in the
    world.

HELBIONET Objective
The creation of the national science and
technology Network on Biodiversity, the
HELBIONET, in order to design the construction
and implementation of the national node as the
Greek contribution to the European Infrastructure
of LIFEWATCH. This design must come from the
activities of the Network and has to be fully
analysed through the elaboration of a Feasibility
Study (FS) which is the main deliverable of the
project.

HELBIONET Specific objectives
1. To ally all the Greek scientific human
potential (defragmentation) working on
Biodiversity data and data observatories, in the
state and abroad, in order to achieve a
world-class excellence status in Biodiversity
research. 2. To release all productive
Biodiversity-relevant powers of the state which
are now either hidden or fragmented by engaging
all the interested parties, including
stakeholders the end users, and by developing new
strategic partnerships towards sustainable
management of use of the national Biodiversity
wealth. 3. To disseminate the scientific and
technological knowledge and experience on
Biodiversity research to targeted and broad
audiences through a variety of means such as
workshops and e-conferences as well as
electronic media (e.g. web site, mailing
list).
9
Why?
Simply because the national Biodiversity data and
data observatory equals to the cadastre of the
national capital.

HELBIONET Proposal principles
1. Clarity. 2. Scientific soundness and
entirety (e.g. quality controlled
deliverables, viability) 3. Cohesion (design in
collaboration with LIFEWATCH, distributed
network other ESFRI projects - EMBRC).
17
HELBIONET Consortium
1. Readiness (previous experience). 2.
Complementarity (disciplines, trading zones,
technological advances) 3. Simplicity
(information flow, communal approach). 4.
Hierarchical approach (management). 5.
Interconnectivity (activities) 6. Sustainability
(commitment, stakeholder involvement).
