LifeData develops knowledge based data services and
improves the life cycle and accessibility of environmental data
This project identifies, applies and demonstrates new database management methods and user application systems for generating an integrated data management process. Similarly, the project rationalises the use of collected data to bridge the gap between data and information producers and users enabling an easy access to databases. The appropriate tools for data management and well organised working methods rationalise the data collection, documentation, storing, (re)use and mining. The tools and methods will be conducted at organisation level, such that they can be utilised in other knowledge based organisations to communicate with public actors.
LifeData will be put into practice in six actions.
