Concept notes must use the template provided and include information on co-funding.  

Proposals for one-year projects starting on 16 June 2016 can receive a maximum of €15,000 for mentoring activities, regional training support, GBIF advocacy actions, documentation and capacity needs assessments. Applicants are encouraged to explore earlier projects for inspiration.
