LTER-LIFE is a Large-Scale Research Infrastructure in the making. It will provide a state-of-the-art e-infrastructure to study and predict how changes in climate and other human-induced pressures affect ecosystems and biodiversity. LTER-LIFE is funded through the Large-scale Research Infrastructure – National Roadmap Consortia 2021 of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The programme has started in the summer of 2023.

LTER-LIFE will build a unique virtual research environment to capitalize on recent advances in big data science. This will enable ecologists to link scattered long-term data on plants, animals, and the environment; share methods for data analysis, modelling, and simulation; and build digital replicas of entire ecosystems (digital twins). This will transform our ability to understand and predict how ecosystems will respond under different scenarios and mitigation measures, fostering scientific breakthroughs and societal impact.
