What we do
Our progress to date includes the completion of a first selection round for Global Core Biodata Resources (GCBRs) and the publication of a pre-print of an inventory of global data resources that supports our understanding of the global data ecosystem and its components. The representatives of the GCBRs are now part of the GCBR Forum that will progress the work of developing sustainability models. These scientific endeavours are collectively underpinned by the output of the Board working groups on open data strategies and sustainability.
To stabilize and ensure sustainable financial support for the global biodata infrastructure, with a focus on an identified and prioritized set of Global Core Biodata Resources that are crucial for sustaining the broader ecosystem.
We look ahead to global inclusivity, whereby scientists in all countries and regions have the opportunity to benefit from, and contribute to, secure and sustained biodata resources enabled through the alignment and committed support of a breadth and diversity of the world’s life science funders.
