Biodiversity Data

The Belgian Biodiversity Platform offers services to Belgian researchers in the publication, management and use of biodiversity data. These include:

  • Provide technical support to Belgian research teams for the publication of their biodiversity data (e.g. occurrence data, checklists, metadata) 
  • Provide financial support to digitise biodiversity data (i.e. digitisation calls)
  • Act as a source of information on funding opportunities related to data publication and data use
  • Promote free and open access to biodiversity data


The Belgian Biodiversity Platform is the Belgian national node of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), an international initiative that encourages free and open access to biodiversity data.
