Deliverables | Emodnet Biology

Dear User, the EMODnet Biology portal will soon be integrated into our new EMODnet Central Portal, which will provide continued, open and free access to our data and information services with unique new features. By providing a Centralised EMODnet service, we aim to help you optimise your research and work.

You can preview our new unified content, document search facilities and unified data catalogue via the EMODnet Product Catalogue
The new and optimised common map viewer will be launched in November 2022.

Follow us on Twitter (@EMODnet and @EUROBIS_VLIZ) for the latest news on our centralisation process and new features.

For any questions or comments, you can contact us via .
