- 24 October 2018DiSSCo delegation to participate in Executive Masters class "Management of Research Infrastructures"
Back to school is the motto for a certain group of people linked to DiSSCo. Because the DiSSCo coordination office is very keen to invest in the natural scientific collections community and further develop skills surrounding the management and leadership of RIs, it reserved three places in the Executive Masters class "Management of Research Infrastructures" at the University of Milano.

Building leadership capacity across the DiSSCo consortium is essential for the successful development of DiSSCo. The Executive Masters in Management of Research Infrastructures (EMMRI) at the University of Milano-Bicocca is an opportunity to start building this capacity. Thanks to funding received by NLBIF, DiSSCo is able to participate as a Team to the 12 modules included in the Executive Masters programme for 2018-2020.

DiSSCo has formally entered the European roadmap. European natural science collections are now, for the first time at European level, recognised as a priority Research Infrastructure for the European Research Area. This constitutes a step-change in the way natural science collections will continue develop and operate.
