On behalf of the network of national Participants, the GBIF Secretariat is pleased to invite nominations for the 2021 Young Researchers Award. This annual programme aims to foster and recognize innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics by graduate students whose master’s and doctoral studies rely on GBIF-mediated data.
The 2021 programme will provide a pair of €5,000 prizes recognising the work of two early-career researchers—preferably, one master’s and one PhD candidate—nominated by the heads of delegation and node managers from GBIF Participant countries.
A jury organised by GBIF Science Committee will select two award recipients from the pool of nominees whose names are received by the GBIF Secretariat by 21 June 2021. The winners will be announced in early fall 2021.
