NBN Regional Hub service focus and branding
RECOMMENDATION 12: NBN REGIONAL HUB SERVICE FOCUS & BRANDING
NBN Regional Hub Partners should provide services that i) support the flow of biological records to the NBN Atlas for Open use, ii) raise the awareness of, engagement in, and support for biological recording, and iii) support the effective interpretation and use of biological records in local and regional decision-making.
Both new and existing organisations or partnerships should be encouraged to apply to become an NBN Regional Hub in order to access funding and/or tools to support the provision of these services to a particular community or geographic area.
NBN Regional Hub Partners should be required to use NBN Regional Hub branding and/or an NBN Atlas ‘KitemarkTM’ to facilitate public awareness of the Regional Hub services available in Scotland.
Some rationalisation and accreditation of Regional Hub Partners may also be necessary to ensure that NBN Regional Hubs operate effectively and without duplication.
