2018 GGBN-GGI Awards Program

Posted February 1, 2018 - 1:17pm

The GGBN-GGI Awards Program sponsored by the Global Genome Initiative provides funding in support of projects that promote the discoverability of new genetic collections through the Global Genome Biodiversity Network’s Data Portal (http://www.ggbn.org/ ). Any institution with non-human genetic resources, to include both current and prospective members, who are pursuing or have achieved GGBN core membership are eligible to apply. Institutions with successful proposals who have not yet joined GGBN must − as a minimum − become an Associate GGBN Member by signing the GGBN MOU prior to the awarding of funds and become a Core GGBN Member upon project completion. The submission deadline for proposals this year is 1 May 2018. The Proposal Review Committee will consider requests for up to $30,000 with clearly articulated budget justifications. All data must be made available online on the GGBN portal before 1 September 2019.
