The EURODEER network of researchers recognize the importance of scientific collaborations at all levels. We are committed to create links, share knowledge and promote common initiatives with other projects that share the same vision on data sharing for movement ecology.
The first result of this activity was the EUROUNGULATES project, that expanded the EURODEER approach developed for roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) to wild boar (Sus scrofa) and red deer (Cervus elaphus). Now, the initiative has expanded to include the European lynx (Lynx lynx), the wild cat (Felis silvestris), thus originating the pan-European umbrella project EUROMAMMALS.
Moreover, EURODEER fostered the development and taking off of the sibling initiative AFRIMOVE .
The EURODEER project is also in close contact and collaboration with other data sharing projects or movement data platforms, in particular:
The 'operative' part of the collaboration, i.e. the database model and the approach to store and operate on data, were the basis for several training events (especially organised in partnership with IRSAE), publications and also a book:
