Discussion – how to develop EDNA for environmental monitoring in Sweden

Suggested discussion topics for 2-3 groups:

  • What place do metabarcoding have in environmental assessment?
  • How shall we work within EDNA? Just have an annual workshop for information, shall we have working groups (which), or shall we do active lobbying, and in that case how? Suggestions?
  • What are the “new” people think that EDNA should do – what would they wish we would do together? The “outside-view”
