Steering Board

The Team

LTER-LIFE is built on three GWIs which are on the Dutch Roadmap for Large Infrastructure: Long-Term Ecosystem Research Netherlands (LTER-NL) carries out and connects time series on long-term ecosystem monitoring within two LTER sites, and makes these data available for research. LTER-NL is part of LTER-Europe, which is on the European ESFRI road map for large infrastructure. National Environmental Monitoring Network (NemNet) runs a national scheme of abiotic monitoring of soils, water and air. LifeWatch develops virtual laboratories to answer fundamental questions on the functioning and resilience of ecosystems. It is part of the European LifeWatch ERIC. LTER-LIFE will lead to, and capitalize on, synergy between these three GWIs.
