GBIF invites proposals from graduate students for the 2012 Young Researchers Award. This prize intends to foster innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics.
Two awards of €4,000 will be available to graduate students in a master’s or doctoral programme at a university in a GBIF Voting Participant or Associate Participant country.
Submitted proposals will be reviewed by the Head of Delegation of a GBIF Voting or Associate Participant country. Students are encouraged to contact their academic advisors, the GBIF national node in their country or members of the Science Committee regarding the deadline for proposal submissions at the national level. Contacts of the Heads of Delegation are available at www.gbif.org/communications/directory-of-contacts/governing-board-of-gbif/.
The deadline to receive nominations from the Heads of Delegation is 15 March 2012.
