Are you carrying out science and/or research in, for and with our UNESCO Biosphere?

If so, you might be interested in presenting your work at an international conference taking place from May 16th-20th, 2022.

Organised by Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development and supported by UNESCO, among other bodies, the event in the Schorfheide-Chorin Biosphere, Germany, will hear from (1) early career scientists* and (2) organisations and institutions carrying out science/research in Biospheres.

Learning (research and education) is one of the three global functions of UNESCO Biospheres globally.

The event will help shape future research in Biospheres and beyond as Biospheres continue to play a role in solving some of the planet’s challenges.

Further details will be announced, including funding toward the cost of attendance and the selection process if the event is over subscribed.

To register an interest in taking part, email with your name, contact details, which category you fall into, and details about your science/research.

We will email you the event details available so far and stay in touch with you.

*An early career scientist is a student, a PhD candidate, or a practising scientist who received their highest certificate (e.g. BSc, MSc or PhD) within the past seven years. The seven-year period can be extended to allow for periods when the scientist was not working in science because of, but not limited to, caring and/or parental responsibilities, disability, personal illness, community obligations or national service.
