It was a pleasure to share the techniques and perspectives of our BioMONITec team with experts in nature conservation at the EUROPARC Conference at Neusiedlersee-Seewinkel National Park.

As part of the Mindfactory "New Ways of Monitoring: New Techniques for Scientists and Visitors", together with Sebastian Sarx and Steffen Gebhardt from Digitize the Planet e.V. and our own Melanie Erlacher, we gave the participants an overview of existing technologies.

In the discussion, we agreed that there is a huge potential for new ways to collect biodiversity data. Artificial intelligence and machine learning have enormous potential in this field. However, the most important outcome was that we need to learn from each other and share our experiences. The BioMONITec team is currently working on a platform that will enable this exchange and provide an overview of technologies and best practices.
