|Christina Flann (Species 2000) and Michelle Price (CETAF Chair),|
signing the renewed MoU
Last week in Geneva at the Consortium of European Taxonomic Facilities CETAF38 Meeting, the renewed MoU between Species 2000 and CETAF was signed. The meeting was held in the Ariana Museum and Christina Flann, Species 2000 Strategic Partnerships Officer, gave a presentation on the synergies between the draft CoL Strategic Plan and the strategic plans of GBIF and CETAF, both ratified by the respective bodies last week. We look forward to a continued vibrant relationship with CETAF and its members. During the meeting Species 2000 was invited to attend a CETAF Earth Sciences Working Group meeting in February 2016 to discuss incorporating European fossil data into the CoL.
Geneva was a beautiful location and walking along the lakeside to the fantastic dinner held in the Herbarium we marvelled at the famous fountain as the sun set over the mountains in the background.
