1. Description of the NC work plan stream

For many nodes lack or limited financial resources for activities is hampering progress in data mobilization and GBIF related activities at national, institutional or international organization level. Adequate financial resources are required to maintain acquired capacities and a constant level of activities. GBIF Participant Nodes are in continuous need to look for new sources of funding from different government authorities, institutional or project funding.  Collectively, GBIF Participants Nodes have a wealth of experience in how to maintain activities in under resourced nodes and in finding new funding sources. These experiences are however not easily available for sharing. The objective of this stream is to promote the sharing of experiences and the promotion of best practices in ensuring funds for nodes activities.

2. Suggested outcomes of the NC work plan stream

Please improve the possible outcomes after a two years implementation of the Nodes Committee work plan:

  • Improved information resources on best pratices in finding funds for Nodes activities

3. Suggested activities for the NC work plan stream

Please expand the list of possible activities for the two year Nodes Committee work plan, for example:

  • Developing use-cases of models for Nodes funding
  • Developing working methods for identifying collaborative objectives foir funding calls
  • Sharing experiences and success stories about securing nodes funding

4. Actions suggested by regional work plans or the NSG

The following list of activities could be used as a resources to draw activities from for the stream on promoting best practices in finding funds for Nodes activities of the Nodes Committee work plan.

     Digitizing NHC - Look for possible fundings; European WP

     National checklists - Seek EU fundings; European WP

     EU Comm' - Send EU calls info to Secretariat; European WP

     EU Comm' - Anticipate future calls; European WP

     Activities under "BIFA" fund; Asian WP

     Finding funding for Nodes activities (national & regional); NSG brainstorm

5. Information resources already available in GBIF

 

 

6. Instructions for the NC work plan group at GNM13

 

The five work plan groups of streams 4-8 will work with the initial content on the topic of each stream at the community site and will consolidate and expand this content per stream. The results of the work plan groups will form the basis of the NC work plan descriptions for the relevant streams.

 

 

The facilitator of this group is TBD
