Sunday, 20 January 2019

The Threatened Species Recovery Hub is hosting a biodiversity horizon summit on 1 March in Melbourne. The summit will bring individuals together from across sectors with a stake in biodiversity matters, to develop horizon thinking that transcends individual sectoral perspectives and positions.  

By gathering strategic insights on emerging trends and identifying risks and opportunities, the summit aims to develop a framework that can guide prospective directions for research investment in biodiversity and conservation.

The Hub is offering two scholarships to enable Early Career Researchers (ECRs) who have an interest in biodiversity and conservation to be a part of the discussion and provide insights around current and emerging threats to biodiversity in Australia and related research needs using a horizon scanning approach.
