GBIF's standing committees

As required under its rules of procedure, the GBIF Governing Board has set up three standing committees to act as advisory bodies, each with its own terms of reference and with its officers and membership elected by the Governing Board. They are: the Science Committee, the Budget Committee and the Participant Node Managers Committee (including the Nodes Steering Group). The functions and membership of each committee are described on this page. 

Science Committee

The GBIF Science Committee is an advisory committee that oversees the development and progress of the GBIF work programme and makes recommendations to the Governing Board, the Executive Committee and the Secretariat. You can read its terms of reference here.

Among its other functions, the Science Committee is responsible for the selection of winners of the Ebbe Nielsen Prize and GBIF Young Researchers Award, and of speakers at the annual GBIF Science Symposium.

Participant Node Managers Committee

The Participant Node Managers Committee (also referred to as the Nodes Committee) serves as a forum for sharing information about the status and best practices of GBIF Participant nodes. It also acts as an advisory committee making recommendations to the Governing Board, the Executive Committee, the Science Committee and the Secretariat concerning issues relevant to the nodes.

The Nodes Steering Group (NSG), established in 2011, consists of the Chair and Vice Chairs of the Participant Node Managers Committee, and regional representatives from each of the six GBIF regions (Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and Oceania).  Among its objectives are to formulate specific recommendations to the relevant GBIF bodies based on feedback provided by Participant nodes, and to provide advice on the GBIF Work Programme relevant to nodes.

Terms of reference for the Participant Node Managers Committee, including amendments setting up the Nodes Steering Group, can be found here.
