Nominations for GBIF Young Researchers Award 2018

Wed, 2018-02-07 12:01 -- dpaul

From GBIF:

On behalf of the network of national Participants, the GBIF Secretariat is pleased to invite nominations for the 2018 Young Researchers Award. This annual programme aims to foster innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics by graduate students whose master’s and doctoral studies rely on GBIF-mediated data.

The 2018 programme will provide €5,000 prizes recognizing the work of two graduate students—preferably, one master’s and one PhD candidate—nominated by GBIF Participant countries.

Award recipients will be selected from the pool of nominees whose names are received by the GBIF Secretariat by 15 June 2018. The winners will be announced just prior to the 25th GBIF Governing Board meeting, to be held in Kilkenny, Ireland, in October 2018.
