Ibon Cancio (UPV/EHU) and Belén Martín Míguez (University of Vigo) participated in the workshop “Digital Sequence information, Open Access, and Sustainable Benefit” as participants in EOSC-Life, and representing the European Marine Biological Research Centre (EMBRC-ERIC). Ibon Cancio was invited to present his perspective as researcher on the utilization of Digital Sequence Information in marine biological sciences.
The aim of the workshop was to inform European Commission policy makers and Nagoya national focal points of the needs of researchers concerning DSI and the hurdles that new .regulations in the framework of the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing could impose on scientific advances. Three regulatory scenarios were discussed in advance of the COP meeting to take place in China in October 2020.
Ibon Cancio’s presentation was entitled “The ‘Wild Sea’ & Digital Sequence Information”.
