GBIF Ebbe Nielsen Challenge: Seven weeks to go...

Let's start with a sincere thanks from the GBIF Secretariat—we can't wait to see the uses you devise for our open-access infrastructure!

We trust you're pairing up with collaborators and co-conspirators, but as and when questions arise, do feel free to post to the discussion forum. Should you need to contact us privately, email us at and we'll respond as quickly as we can.

Finally, thanks to those of you who've helped spread word of the challenge, both privately and through social media (Twitter shout-outs seem to come in waves every few days). We're encouraged thus far, despite having no clearer idea of the innovations that will emerge.

All best, on behalf of my colleagues at the GBIF Secretariat,
Kyle Copas
