The Belgian Focal Point to the Global Taxonomy Initiative has officially launched its new call for proposals in regard to ‘taxonomic training and access to collections in Belgium’ for the year 2016.

This 2016 call aims at enabling former GTI trainees (from 2014 and/or 2015) to finalise their work with their Belgian tutors. The maximum number of visits is set to 3 times.

Among the former GTI trainees, a selection will occur: people have to still be eligible (be younger than 45 years old, belong to an official research institution, etc.), they must have sent their reports and also have been positively rated by their Belgian tutors.

It is very important that the applicants clearly state in their project:
• How they plan to use their projects to advance research in their field;
• How they will disseminate their results (poster, publication, diploma, oral communication, etc…);
• How their project will contribute to the conservation of biodiversity and/or ecosystem services in the partner country;
• How their project could (in a long or medium term) contribute to fight against poverty in the South.

The online application form can be filled out here:

Applicants have to provide a recent CV and a photo to complete their online application.

Applications must be submitted online until 27 February 2016.
