We are a knowledge network and we rely on collaboration. For the development of key topics, we organize ourselves into Collaboration Groups, which are teams that are formed voluntarily by the partners and are framed within the Network’s strategic plan.
The collaboration groups are made up of Network partners and eventually invited individuals may also join.
These are opportunities to:
- Collaborate in the technical or conceptual development of the Network.
- Take advantage of connections to create and share experiences, information, perspectives and knowledge related to citizen science and the Amazon.
To date, the Network has these Collaboration Groups:
- Environmental DNA and Schools is developing an environmental DNA research protocol that will involve rural schools to monitor the presence of migratory fish in the watersheds where they are located.
- Water and Environment has the important role of easing discussion and knowledge sharing on the use, management and acquisition of data on water quality and environmental factors using accessible and low-cost protocols.
- The Science group guides and directs research design and data analysis throughout the Amazon Basin.
- The Microplastics Group is working on a research proposal on microplastics in water and fish. Read more.
- The Fish Group supports the improvement of the conceptual design, implementation and use of the Ictio application and database.
The Communication Group supports the management of the Network’s communication and giving visibility to the actions/partners´ research.
