GB20 Nodes training course: building stronger GBIF Nodes

The GBIF Nodes Committee met in connection to the 20th meeting of the Governing Board in Germany in October 2013. A global training course for Node managers and staff members was hold back to back to this meeting. The contents of the course were based on the recommendations received through the GBIF Nodes report 2011 (GB19) and an online survey about Participants' training priorities and plans carried out at the end of 2012.
The event was focused on the social component of Node management (when interacting with both potential data publishers and users) and on the new tools being developed by GBIF (2013 data portal and NPT Startup). It was designed as a flexible, modular event with different complexity levels, where participants could sign up for the modules which better fitted their experience and interests. Support with resources in different languages was provided.
