BIOS² Workshop: Bridging the Science-Policy Void

Do you think science should influence policy? Do you wonder how to improve evidence-based decision making? Do you have a particular issue that you would like to bring to the attention of decision makers?

Sign up for an online workshop on Communicating science to policy makers hosted by Pr. Sarah P. Otto (UBC). This online training will be conducted in 4*90-minute sessions every Monday of March stating on March 7, 2022.

BIOS² workshop on Science for Decision Support – Scientific Advice

Event postponed.

BIOS² is organizing a training session about Science for Decision Support – Scientific Advice. This online training will be facilitated by Pr. Philippe Archambault (Laval University), in November 2021 and a future date in winter 2022.

Call for proposals: Open projects in biodiversity science and Non-NSE domains

The BIOS2 Research Funding Program supports open projects in biodiversity science and non-NSE domains proposed by academic members

The BIOS² training program provides a framework to foster collaborative, multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral research. It focuses on training the next generation of highly qualified people in quantitative ecology as well as future actors and decision makers in the biodiversity science sector. The main objectives of the program are to widen opportunities and skill sets among students and increase their recruitment in Biodiversity science in the Canadian job market. 

We are currently offering financial support for projects in biodiversity science, and in non-Natural Sciences and Engineering domains. The aim of this call is to fund projects, not students. Once the project is awarded, students are selected by the academic member(s) leading the project.
