Apply for co-funding to prepare and publish Norwegian species occurrence data

May 15, 2015

GBIF Norway invites project proposals for co-funding the preparation of your species occurrence data and ensuring the data quality before datasets are published in GBIF and the Norwegian Species Map (Artskart). Successful applications will be offered co-funding contributions as a grant to the responsible institution after a careful evaluation of all applications that are received within the deadline. The responsible institution is expected to provide complementary self-funded work or financial contributions at least matching the financial support for GBIF Norway.
