The conference series aims to bring together conservation scientists in the early stages of their research careers. SCCS also uses its location in Cambridge to build firm links between the new generation of conservation scientists and the many national and international conservation agencies based nearby.
The conference has an internship scheme, which is available for conference delegates from developing and eastern European countries. This scheme enables student delegates to spend up to one month after the conference with a UK-based NGO or university department carrying out a conservation-related project of mutual interest.
Internship applicants are required to submit their application by 16 October 2015.
Please note that the internship period will begin on Good Friday 25 March 2016.
The closing date for applications to the conference is 23 October 2015 at 10:00 GMT.
