The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) is inviting nominations for its 2017 Young Researchers Awards. The Awards aim to foster innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics by graduate students who are working with GBIF-enabled data in master’s and doctoral studies.
The 2017 GBIF Young Researchers Award is funded by SBNO: Stichting ter Bevordering van Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoek, with in-kind support from Pensoft Publishers through waiving of publication charges.
This opportunity is open to graduate students enrolled in a university’s masters or doctoral programme. The award winners will be expected to prepare papers and submit them for publication in an open-access journal.
Deadline for nominations is 15 July 2017. For more information, visit the Global Biodiversity Information Facility website.
