Over 18 million euros to identify the full breadth of biodiversity in the Netherlands

An organized overview of all multicellular flora and fauna in the Netherlands and the infrastructure to identify them semi-automatically. This is what the ARISE megaproject wants to achieve in five to ten years’ time.
The Dutch Research Council (NWO), Naturalis Biodiversity Center, the University of Amsterdam, the University of Twente and the Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute are investing a combined total of over 18 million euros. Koos Biesmeijer, leader of the consortium, is very pleased: "ARISE will give a big boost to our understanding of food webs and ecosystems and in the status and trends of our biodiversity."
