10 years of Pl@ntNet: the collaborative platform becomes sustainable by creating an open consortium

Ten years after the launch of the first collaborative plant identification platform used by millions of people, its four founding members (CIRAD, INRAE, Inria, and IRD) have just set up a consortium to ensure its sustainability. This consortium, which is managed by Inria and with which Agropolis Fondation is associated, is open to new members, such as scientific, educational, associative or industrial structures. Several membership modes are possible, with a variable involvement depending on the amount of the annual fees chosen. New members will thus be able to participate in the governance of Pl@ntNet, contribute to the definition of its development priorities, and thus become a key player in the characterization of plant biodiversity. If you think that your organization fits perfectly in this perspective, do not hesitate to contact us!
