Opening of the call for proposals on biodiversity FRB-CESAB 2020

The Center for Biodiversity Synthesis and Analysis (CESAB) of the French Foundation for Biodiversity Research is opening a call for research projects, to fund at least three innovative projects relating to the synthesis of ideas and concepts and/or the analysis of existing data. The main aim of these projects should be to improve scientific knowledge of biodiversity and demonstrate how we can use this knowledge to better protect it. The submitted projects can deal with any topic related to biodiversity, in the fields of natural sciences or human and social sciences.

The selected projects will be funded for a period of three years, including: the recruitment of a post-doctoral student for two years, the organization of six meetings of the working group at CESAB and the promotion and publication of the results. The CESAB will also provide logistical, technical and administrative support.

Members of CESAB projects share their scientific expertise, available data and modeling tools to answer a wide range of biodiversity questions at all spatial and temporal scales. Composed of a maximum of 14 experts, each selected project must be coordinated by a recognized scientist attached to a French research organization. Please share!
