DiSSCo RIsing - the Digital Transformation of Natural Science Collections
iDigBio at MOBILISE Workshops
MOBILISE First Training School on Digitization and Data Management of Collections!
The European MOBILISE COST Action sets out "to foster a cooperative network in Europe to support excellent research activities, and facilitate knowledge and technology transfer around natural science collections." As part of their efforts to prepare for the funding and implementation of DiSSCo, they are setting up their first First Training School on Digitization and Data Management of Collections!

The short version.
ICEDIG: Innovation and consolidation for large scale digitization of natural heritage
Imagine an ADBC-type program for the EU and related countries with their very own version of Thematic Collection Networks and an iDigBio-like hub. This very idea is coming soon with the monicker: DiSSCo -- Distributed System of Scientific Collections. How will it be structured? What human resources will be needed? What about the cyberinfrastructure? What experiences and lessons learned can iDigBio share to benefit DiSSCo?
