MAB Young Scientists Awards
 

Applications are open for MAB Young Scientists Awards to target young researchers carrying out interdisciplinary research in line with UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme. Priority is given to projects carried out in biosphere reserves.

MAB Young Scientists Award applicants are strongly encouraged to take into account the priorities of the LAP, and to identify in their applications how their research contributes to the research-related actions of the LAP and to the SDGs.

Objectives

The objectives of the MAB Young Scientists Award Scheme are to:

  • encourage young scientists, in particular those from developing countries, to use MAB research, project sites and biosphere reserves in their research;
  • encourage young scientists who already use such sites to undertake comparative studies in other sites in or outside their own country;
  • promote and encourage the exchange of information and experience among a new generation of scientists;
  • strengthen communication of the LAP within the young scientists and strengthen its visibility;
  • involve young scientist in the implementation of the LAP;
  • enhance awareness among young scientists of the role of research in the implementation of the SDGs – in particular when conducted in biosphere reserves.

Criteria

The following criteria are used in the selection of MAB Young Scientists Awards:

  • To be eligible, award applications must be made on the MAB Young Scientists Award application form (in English or French) and follow-up technical requirements stated there. The application must be endorsed by the applicant’s MAB National Committee, which may endorse only two applications per year from applicants who are not older than 35 years of age (at the closing date of the application).
  • Applications must contain concise information on past and existing research in areas concerned in order to present linkages and avoid duplications and financing of projects already carried-out.
  • Priority is given to interdisciplinary projects carried out in biosphere reserves designated under the Man and the Biosphere Programme or potential biosphere reserves and which contribute to the implementation of the LAP and the SDGs. In this regard, applicants shall identify in their applications if and how their research contributes to the research-related actions of the LAP and to the SDGs.
  • Applicants from developed countries are eligible for Awards only in exceptional cases or if working in joint partnership with developing countries.
  • Awards are set at a maximum of US$5,000 each.
  • Research supported by an Award should be completed within two years.
