2019 GBIF Ebbe Nielsen Challenge

About the challenge

Join the 2019 GBIF Nielsen Challenge and win up to €34,000 in prizes! Create the most innovative technique using biodiversity data and tools from the GBIF network to develop open science. Register until August 1, 2019 and make your a chance to win!


Your team has to prepare tools that will improve the accessibility, usability and quality of open biodiversity data. Entrants can focus on developing new applications, visualizations, methods, workflows or analyzes by using the access to the GBIF API data. You may also improve the capabilities of existing tools and features from across the GBIF network. Challenge participants can take any number of approaches and their solutions should be useful for multiple stakeholder groups, including data users, data holders and data managers. You can view the GBIF Communications Strategy to see how they describe GBIF’s audiences.


Meet the deadline and register for the competition at the official 2019 GBIF Nielsen Challenge website.
