FYI the Belgian Biodiversity Platform is working for some months now on
an improved electronic version of the Harmonia+ protocol

The ultimate goal is to be able to create new protocols from scratch,
manage assessments, aggregate modules, create groups, etc.

It's still very beta, but testable on http://home.bebif.be/aa/ (tested
only on Firefox ATM), just create an account by clicking on 'register'
on the homepage ..

best regards,
