GBIF brings together a growing, vibrant community that works together towards a shared yet challenging vision. This dynamic environment requires continuous training and knowledge-sharing among peers to keep up with developments in biodiversity informatics and to make the most of existing resources. The Participants and the Secretariat constantly work to provide training opportunities along with extensive documentation in different languages.
The thematic scope of this training ranges through the complete data management cycle (from capture and digitization to analysis and use), software use, the building of biodiversity information facilities, the management of knowledge networks and much more.
GBIF-related events are held all over the world. Please visit our events section to check upcoming opportunities. You can also find out about past events, links to resources shared at the event, and details about participation.
If you are hosting a training event that you feel would interest the GBIF community and where international participation is welcome, let us know.
The main source for training resources shared at the global level is our Resources section. You can look for relevant resources by using the search box at the top of the page. If you know of a resource that is not available, and which you think could be of the interest of the GBIF community, send us a message.
