The Freshwater Information Platform brings together information and findings from freshwater ecosystems research. Launched in 2015, the website summarises the findings of completed as well as ongoing research projects, and makes them accessible to the public, offering a unique and comprehensive knowledge base for the sustainable and evidence‐based management of our endangered freshwaters and the resources they provide. The platform contains several complementary sections, either providing access to original data or summarising research results in an easily digestible way. All sections are composed as ‘living documents’ that will be continuously improved and updated.
To develop this information portal, IGB joined forces with the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna (BOKU), the University of Duisburg/Essen (UDE) and the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) in Brussels.
