The call is now open for the GBIF 2023 Graduate Researchers Award (previously the Young Researchers Award).
The award fosters innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics by graduate students in masters and doctorate programmes at universities, whose studies rely on GBIF-mediated data, in countries participating in the GBIF network.
The 2023 programme will provide €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.
South Africa, as a GBIF Participant Country, will nominate two candidates selected from the national applications submitted to the SANBI-GBIF Node until 26 May 2023.
This selection will be supported through the SANBI-GBIF Graduate Researcher Award Advisory Panel.
