The Erasmus+Exchange Meeting in Munich was a staff training event of Czech and Bavarian academic partners. It followed up the action Flora Silvae Gabretae – Flora des Böhmerwaldes – Květena Šumavy of the ETC INTERREG V program. The partners exchanged information on active participation in biodiversity databases in the context of botanical collections. They gained insights into processes and interactions with European and international aggregators of biodiversity data, especially DiSSCo and GBIF. Gained knowledge will help to make informed decisions about future cooperation on the biodiversity data.
