The goal of the network webinars is to improve sustained communication and interaction between the Secretariat and nodes, in the hopes of enhancing work across the network - particularly with regard to the GBIF strategic plan and annual implementation plan.
The content of the webinars includes news from the Secretariat as well as updates on work programme progress. The Secretariat also invites guest speakers to contribute to the webinars.
To accomodate nodes in different time zones, two sessions are held per webinar, roughly according to this schedule:
|Session||Time (UTC +2)||Target regions|
|Early Copenhagen time||09.30 - 11.00||Oceania, Asia, Africa, Europe|
|Late Copenhagen time||15.30 - 17.00||Americas, Africa, Europe|
