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 recognizing 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.
Applicants can get further information about the submission process and deadlines from national GBIF nodes. In Chile, applications must be submitted to the GBIF Chile Node (firstname.lastname@example.org) before May the 31st, 2021.
