Organisation & contact

Since its inception, the network has been directed by a temporary board, led by a chair and a vice chair. At the planned BIODICE annual meeting in 2024, the membership will vote for a board.


The management of the network is facilitated through support from the Icelandic Museum of Natural History (IMNH) and the management team includes Skúli Skúlason, Ragnhildur Guðmundsdóttir (IMNH), Ole Sandberg (IMNH) and Rannveig Magnúsdóttir (Landvernd). The board, and task groups, also participate in management activities.
