7 GBIF-Sweden Frustrating points to discuss: A national biodiversity informatics strategy in Sweden envisioned?. For whom is it set up (government, researchers, management officials, public/lay interests)? Who is to decide? Who pays? What about the global perspective – facing an overriding local interest? A national biodiversity informatics strategy in Sweden envisioned?. For whom is it set up (government, researchers, management officials, public/lay interests)? Who is to decide? Who pays? What about the global perspective – facing an overriding local interest? How to manage requested merger (!) of boards of GBIF-Sweden and Swedish LifeWatch called for by the Swedish Research Council (negotiations are about to begin)? The SRC is the main source of funding for both initiatives?: How to manage requested merger (!) of boards of GBIF-Sweden and Swedish LifeWatch called for by the Swedish Research Council (negotiations are about to begin)? The SRC is the main source of funding for both initiatives?: - GBIF-Sweden receives 0.32 MEUR/yr from SRC. Membership fee to be added. - GBIF-Sweden receives 0.32 MEUR/yr from SRC. Membership fee to be added. - Swedish LifeWatch receives 1.4 MEUR/yr (80% from SRC; 17% from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences; 3% from ”other sources”). An unknown sum in support of ”The Species Gateway” from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. - Swedish LifeWatch receives 1.4 MEUR/yr (80% from SRC; 17% from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences; 3% from ”other sources”).

8 GBIF-Sweden Frustrating points to discuss: How to manage activities orchestrated by the Species Information Centre, ”The Species Gateway” and the Swedish Lifewatch initiative (whose prime interest lies in creating and publishing methods to analyze recent observational data)? How to manage activities orchestrated by the Species Information Centre, ”The Species Gateway” and the Swedish Lifewatch initiative (whose prime interest lies in creating and publishing methods to analyze recent observational data)? Observation data providers tend to prefer to await the launch of ”The Species Gateway 2” in front of letting GBIF apply IPT to existing databases. Observation data providers tend to prefer to await the launch of ”The Species Gateway 2” in front of letting GBIF apply IPT to existing databases. How to manage systems communication? ”The Species Gateway” boast 36,4 million observation records that (except hidden data on red-listed species) should all reach GBIF-Sweden and eventually gbif.org. Which to date it does not (31 million records delivered).

9 GBIF-Sweden Frustrating points to discuss: Will further collection data be left out from Sweden´s contribution to GBIF due to resistance from collection managers to cooperate in proposed large- scale imaging/digitalization project? Will further collection data be left out from Sweden´s contribution to GBIF due to resistance from collection managers to cooperate in proposed large- scale imaging/digitalization project? Thanks!
