Call for nominations to the 2019 GBIF Young Researchers Award


On behalf of the network of national Participants, the GBIF Secretariat announced an invitation of nominations for the 2019 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.

As in previous years, the 2019 programme will provide a pair of €5,000 prizes recognizing the work of two graduate students—preferably, one master’s and one PhD candidate—nominated by GBIF Participant countries.

A jury organized by GBIF Science Committee will select two award recipients from the pool of nominees whose names are received by the GBIF Secretariat by 15 May 2019. The winners will be announced in the summer of 2019.
