Biodiversity research infrastructures are providing the integrated data sets and support for studying scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem dynamics. The CReATIVE-B project - Coordination of Research e-Infrastructures Activities Toward an International Virtual Environment for Biodiversity – explored how cooperation and interoperability of large-scale Research Infrastructures across the globe could support the challenges of biodiversity and ecosystem research. A key outcome of the project is that the research infrastructures agreed to continue cooperation after the end of the project to advance scientific progress in understanding and predicting the complexity of natural systems. By working together in implementing the recommendations in this Roadmap, the data and capabilities of the cooperating research infrastructures are better served to address the grand challenges for biodiversity and ecosystem scientists.
