Title:Toward the European Distributed Institute of Taxonomy
Acronym:EDIT
Description:The overall objective of EDIT is to integrate European taxonomic effort within the ERA and to build a world leading capacity. EDIT will create a European virtual centre of excellence, which will increase both the scientific basis and capacity for biodivers ity conservation. The operational and structural objectives of EDIT are:[1] To reduce fragmentation and to transform taxonomy into an integrated science[2] To strengthen the scientific, technological and information capacities needed for Europe to understa nd how biodiversity is modified through Global change[3] To progress toward a transnational entity by encouraging durable integration of the most important European taxonomic institutions, forming the nucleus of excellence around and from which institution s and taxonomists can integrate their activities[4] To promote the undertaking of collaborative research developing, improving and utilising the bio-informatics technologies needed[5] To create a forum for stakeholders and end-users for taxonomy in biodive rsity and ecosystem research [6] To promote the spreading of excellence to fulfil the needs of biodiversity and ecosystem research for taxonomy based information. EDIT will address significant information and management of knowledge problems in a rapidly c hanging field. The issues to be addressed are scientific but also structural: about governance and management; about providing a suitable IT environment; about the development of new tools; and about getting taxonomists to work as one across European (and other) institutions. EDIT will bring together the leading taxonomic institutions in Europe that for historical reasons have developed independently. The association with leading North American and Russian partners will make it a worldwide leading network: the consortium so constituted unites the premier natural history collections-based institutions, to progress toward EDIT 's structural and scientific objectives.
