Distributed System of Scientific Collections - Preparatory Phase Project

Project description

The digital unification of Europe’s natural science assets

The Distributed System of Scientific Collections (DiSSCo) represents the largest ever formal agreement between natural history museums, botanical gardens and collection-holding universities in the world. It is a new research infrastructure (RI) for natural science collections and works for the digital unification of all European natural science assets under common curation and access policies and practices. To ensure the data are easily findable, more accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR), DiSSCo enables the transformation of a fragmented landscape of the crucial natural science collections into an integrated knowledge base that provides interconnected hard evidence on the natural world. The EU-funded DiSSCo Prepare project will bring together 31 partner organisations to improve the readiness level and deliver the DiSSCo Construction Masterplan. This masterplan will serve as an organisational, financial and technical guiding framework.
