Since 2007 five international workshops have been conducted in the context of the TRY initiative: four workshops open to all members of TRY and focused on design and development of the initiative; one workshop focused on data analysis.
The open workshops have proven to be essential for the progress of the TRY initiative: first to establish and refine the mode of cooperation and data exchange and second to support the communication between scientists contributing and using plant trait data. This communication is considered essential for the future development of the TRY initiative. Therefore we are planning to continue this series of open workshops.
Depending of the availability of funding additional workshops focused on a specific topic may become possible to provide a kick-off start for trait-based projects.
Open Workshop 5: Leipzig, Germany, 3-5 September 2013

Open Workshop 4: Paris, France, 25-27(29) March 2011
This was a joint workshop with the Fast-Track Initiative of the Global Land Project: 'Decreasing uncertainty in predicting biome boundary shifts' (BBS). The workshop was focused on:
Topic Workshop: Jena, Germany, 4-8 October 2010
Towards a global multidimensional spectrum of plant function
This workshop was focused on determining a global multidimensional spectrum of plant function in the context of the TRY project 23.
Open Workshop 3: Cape Town, South Africa, 17-18 October 2009
This was a joint workshop with the Fast-Track Initiative of the Global Land Project: Decreasing uncertainty in predicting biome boundary shifts (BBS). The workshop was focused on:

Open Workshop 2: Paris, France, 19-21 April 2008
Organized by DIVERSITAS and MPI-BGC. During this workshop the structure and preliminary contents of the TRY database were presented, first model-data integration activities were initiated, and the intellectual property guidelines to organize data-sharing within TRY were established.
Open Workshop 1: Alicante, Spain, 7-9 February 2007
Organized by Juli Pausas. During this workshop a list of core traits was established, relevant in the context of vegetation reaction to fast and slow environmental changes and disturbances. This list was used as basis to contact potential contributors of databases.
