sDiv welcomed the 2500th working group participant
On 15 March 2023 sDiv - the synthesis centre of iDiv welcomed its 2500th participant at an sDiv working group meeting. The lucky one was Dr. Steven Bachman who travelled from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in the UK to attend the second in-person meeting of the sDiv working group sRedList at the iDiv headquarters. This meeting was co-incidentally the 150th meeting that was organised by sDiv. Dr. Bachmann was very surprised and of course happy to receive the famous iDiv mug, chocolate and a very official handshake from Dr. Marten Winter.
sDiv head Marten Winter summarized “2500 participations within 10 years is a huge achievement and shows the continuing demand of the research community for those collaborative synthesis projects. But it also shows how successful we as iDiv community support the sDiv mechanism at all levels to make it happen in the end (e.g. participation, leadership, admin, governance, advertisements of calls etc)”
