Call for nominations for 2017 Young Researchers Award
20 / 04 / 2017, GBIF
GBIF is inviting nominations for the 2017 Young Researchers Awards, with the focus on publication of datasets that give rich information on species observed or collected in particular sampling events.
The GBIF Young Researchers Awards is an annual programme aimed at fostering innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics. Working closely with GBIF national Participants, the 2017 awards will provide €5,000 prizes recognizing the work of two graduate students—one a master’s candidate and one a PhD candidate—nominated by GBIF Participant countries.
NLBIF will forward proposals to the Dutch Head of Delegation: ms. Daniëlle van Bentem, Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. From these candidates two nominees will be selected.
