The landscape of environmental research infrastructures (RI) and networks is constantly evolving. New RI projects have emerged and some RIs and networks were reorganized (e.g. new RIs supported by H2020 IA calls and new RIs via ESFRI roadmap update process) during the lifetime of the ENVRIplus project. To ensure that the ENVRIplus is serving the entire environmental RI community - also the new RIs – ENVRIplus organizes an annual gathering of the whole ENVRI community.
The Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) seeks to foster a diverse, international scientific community that creates, integrates and communicates knowledge across the full spectrum of aquatic sciences, advances public awareness and education about aquatic resources and research, and promotes scientific stewardship of aquatic resources for the public interest.
