The project has a total duration of 2 years and is divided into two objectives:

• The first objective is on the development of the platform design (e.g., end-users, data providers, added value and prioritised benefits, data quality and interoperability, GDPR requirements, data sharing incentives, user experience, proposed design of the first version of the platform, etc.);

• The second objective is specifically on the development of the platform (versions 1 to 4 produced every 6 months during the 24-month project duration) in collaboration with the EU Bee Partnership, EUBP (from data collection, data integration, data analysis, data visualisation to data communication).

Particular attention shall be given to the EUBP perspectives that will be defined in the open call for tender. Additionally, what needs to be considered is the use of the EFSA field data collected under the MUST-B project, the potential use of available databases/platforms, the need for standards and well-defined data models, the use of new knowledge coming from relevant ongoing research projects and the use of raw and processed data from the Knowledge Junction Community of Zenodo (all to be further described in the open call for tender).
