Belgium hosts important natural history collections, libraries, well-equipped research facilities and well-trained scientific and curatorial staff. To ensure that this rich taxonomic patrimony can also serve taxonomists from the developing countries, the CEBioS programme, that hosts the Belgian National Focal Point to the Global Taxonomy Initiative, annually issues two types of grants:
Type 1: Training in taxonomy and collection management & access to collections in Belgium
Type 2: Support for taxonomy-based research and training projects (OPEN ONLY for taxonomists from the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences)
