The overall objective of EDIT is to integrate European taxonomic effort within the ERA and to build a world leading capacity. EDIT will create a European virtual centre of excellence, which will increase both the scientific basis and capacity for biodiversity conservation.
This will provide better access to a more unified and better quality taxonomic research information base.

The operational and structural objectives of EDIT are:

  • To reduce fragmentation and to transform taxonomy into an integrated science.
  • To strengthen the scientific, technological and information capacities needed for Europe to understand how biodiversity is modified through Global change.
  • To progress toward a transnational entity by encouraging durable integration of the most important European taxonomic institutions, forming the nucleus of excellence around and from which institutions and taxonomists can integrate their activities.
  • To promote the undertaking of collaborative research developing, improving and utilising the bio-informatics technologies needed.
  • To create a forum for stakeholders and end-users for taxonomy in biodiversity and ecosystem research.
  • To promote the spreading of excellence to fulfil the needs of biodiversity and ecosystem research for taxonomy based information.
