TETTRIs aims to produce a transformative change in the role played by taxonomy in tackling biodiversity challenges by boosting taxonomic capacity and transferring critical scientific knowledge to societal actors
The community of facilities, collections and experts gathered around CETAF envisions that the taxonomic knowledge and expertise required to study, protect and manage biological diversity throughout Europe become easily and openly accessible, sustained over time and integrated into decision-making processes. To achieve that, TETTRIs contributes to Transform Taxonomy in Europe trough:
- Training: Advancing taxonomist workforce, with capacity building and training programmes to facilitate the continuous upgrade of competencies and skills.
- Research Transfer: Engaging citizen scientists in natural sciences, as key actors in co-generating taxonomic knowledge and collecting biodiversity data.
- Innovation: Developing innovative methods and digital solutions to improve taxonomic knowledge, support integrative and comprehensive taxonomy, speed up species discovery and description, and making collections and knowledge available at large scale.
