ESEB Global Evolutionary Biology Initiative

Closing Date: –

Support to foster the development and integration of local evolutionary research communities and their links with the evolutionary biology community in Europe.

The European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB), established in 1987, is an academic society that brings together evolutionary biologists from Europe and the rest of the world (researchers, academic teachers, students, as well as journalists and other persons interested in evolution).

The ESEB Global Evolutionary Biology Initiative (GEBI) replaces the ESEB Global Training Initiative. In addition to focusing on training, GEBI also supports:

  • The organisation of local congresses, through eg the transfer of organisational experience, help with acquiring invited speakers, etc.
  • Facilitating increased visibility and global connections for regional societies, by providing support to hold symposia hosted in the specific region, including participants from the region as well as other ESEB member countries.
  • Facilitating networking opportunities to strengthen interactions across local evolution societies.
  • Contributing to the organisation of local University education curricula, through eg the transfer of organisational experience, teaching contribution, resource sharing (books, experimental kits and videos, etc).
  • Supporting any other request from local communities compatible with this initiative and its goals.

Actions fostering Evolutionary Biology in the long term are particularly appreciated and applicants are encouraged to describe how their proposals may reach this long term objective.
