ICCS Biodiversity Fellows Programme aims to improve engagement between researchers, conservation practitioners, policy-makers and businesses, in order that scientific research is informed by, and meaningful for, real-world conservation issues.
The program is now calling for applications for the 2016/17 (first deadline mid-May.) This call is focussed on developing country nationals working in either junior or senior roles, within NGOs or government.
It offers the chance to spend up to 3 months with the ICCS group at the University of Oxford, and includes funding for travel and accommodation, as well as support to attend conferences and training events.
