  Closing Statement by Nicolas Bailly (moderator)

Dear Participants,

Let me conclude this 2nd ENBI e-Conference on Data Validation and Restrictions in the GBIF network highlighting this remark above extracted from the last Pando's message. It is the most part of what this e-conference was about.

I hope this forum will have given some answers, clues and ways to treat the problem, generally, and more particularly within the GBIF global efforts to make the biodiversity data more available and accessible to the humankind.

I would like to thank all contributors for their valuable suggestions, and all participants to have taken on their precious time if not to contribute, at least to read. I know that this exercise is not easy to handle. This e-conference is finished now, and conclusion documents will be produced in the perspective of the meeting in Prague end of May. They will be published on the website of the conference. If any of you would like to contribute more, all suggestions are welcomed.

I have been very pleased to moderate this discussion, and would like to warmly thank Francisco Pando to have invited me to do so, Marisa Esteban and their team at the Real Jardin Botanico (CSIC) in Madrid to have provided the means to do so. I would like also to acknowledge their formidable courage to have continued their work in a very difficult period, I am sure that we had again supporting thoughts during their national funerals.

I wish you all a good continuation and many successes in your works.

Sincerely yours,

Nicolas Bailly
