Structure of PolBIN

Basic Rules

Activities of PolBIN are coordinated by the National Node, located at the Faculty of Biology of University of Warsaw. Its role is to integrate and publish the resources of the Network. The central server hosts working copies of databases of the network members. A partial centralization of the system has only technical reasons, making access to the data faster and improving management of the datasources.

Tasks of the National Node comprise also setting shared data of PolBIN institutions in the GBIF information system. The datasets are visible in the GBIF Portal as separate datasources, belonging to member institutions (see PolBIN members and their datasources in GBIF). The Network members keep the full control over the published data. They can enhance and modify their databases freely and they decide which data to publish.

Members of the Network are scientific institutions and universities. Participants of the Network are the member insitutions themselves or their subunits. The Cooperator status was assigned to institutions or organizations that share some resources and participate in PolBIN activities but mainly due to formal reasons are not bound with the agreement of the scientific network.

Currently the Network has 29 Members, 34 Participants and 10 Cooperators.

Activities of the network are led by the Coordinating Council, consisting of representatives of the member insittutions. The scope of activities and tasks of PolBIN are defined in the Network Statute.
