KNAW Fonds Ecologie 2017

Achttien jonge onderzoekers kunnen in 2017 ecologisch veldwerk uitvoeren in binnen- of buitenland of onderzoek doen aan een universiteit buiten Nederland met een bijdrage uit het KNAW Fonds Ecologie. 

Uitzonderlijk is dat maar liefst vijf jonge onderzoekers van het Institute for Biodiversty and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) van de Universiteit van Amsterdam een beurs kregen toegekend. In totaal ontving de beoordelingscommissie vijftig aanvragen. Een financiële bijdrage bedraagt maximaal negenduizend euro.
