Taskforce

The Task Force, chaired by Prof. M. Loreau and Prof. B. Schmid, was appointed in April 2001 with the mission to reassess the goals and priorities of DIVERSITAS. It met on 31 Aug-1/2 Sept. 2001 in Paris, and, based on a large set of ideas received during a web consultation (May-August 2001), produced the draft science plan for DIVERSITAS. This Task Force was replaced, in January 2002, by a formal Scientific Committee for DIVERSITAS (SC-DIVERSITAS).
