A collaboration involving three CCI partners/CCF members - BirdLife, UNEP-WCMC and IUCN - are now seeking a full-time European Project Manager responsible for the implementation and management of an upcoming collaborative EU research project: “International training at the Science-Policy Interface for Researchers in Europe, for Nature” (Inspire4Nature), an Innovative Training Network (ITN-ETN) funded by the EU under the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions. This project brings together a consortium of 3 research centres (CEFE, FVB-IGB, HCMR), 5 universities (Sapienza Univ., Univ. Copenhagen, UCL, ISPA, NKUA, ISA), and 4 international organisations working on the conservation of biodiversity (IUCN, BirdLife International, WCMC, ZSL), representing 8 countries (France, United Kingdom, Italy, Denmark, Greece, Portugal, Germany, Switzerland). Over a period of 4 years, the project involves the recruitment and training of 15 PhD students (Early-Stage Researchers, ESR) working at the interface between science and policy in the field of the conservation of biodiversity at the international scale.
