GBIF presently welcomes nominations and proposals for both the Ebbe Nielsen Prize and Young Researcher Awards.
GBIF invites nominations for the 2012 Ebbe Nielsen Prize, awarded annually to a person or team who demonstrates excellence in combining biodiversity informatics and biosystematics research.
The €30,000 award is intended to allow the recipient(s) to engage in biosystematics/biodiversity informatics research outside his/her/their country of residence for a period of 3-6 months.
GBIF invites proposals from graduate students for the 2012 Young Researchers Award. This prize intends to foster innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics.
Two awards of €4,000 will be available to graduate students in a master’s or doctoral programme at a university in a GBIF Voting Participant or Associate Participant country.
