Valuing Nature International Summit: Register Your Interest

The Valuing Nature Programme is inviting interested researchers and PhD students to register their interest for our International Summit - Building Valuing Nature Network Members’ Capacity to Participate in International Research Collaborations.

We had hoped to announce an event date for late spring 2020, however, since the coronavirus situation is now rapidly evolving and we are currently home-working, we have no choice but to postpone the event until a later date, sometime in the autumn. It is possible we may plan to have the meeting remotely and in a webinar format.

The summit will be a one-day conference considering different approaches to valuing nature and integrating different forms of knowledge into assessments. Participants and international experts will share knowledge of existing projects and initiatives and identify opportunities to support international research collaboration.

There is no charge to attend the summit and food and accommodation will be provided. Delegates will pay their own travel expenses. The applications process will be managed by the Valuing Nature Programme Coordination Team, ensuring that candidates that have the most potential to benefit from the summit will be selected.

Learning outcomes

  • You will understand global approaches to valuing nature and incorporating different forms of knowledge.
  • You will understand the needs of international research initiatives and platforms.
  • You will have a clear career research plan to work towards successful international collaboration.

Who should attend?

The Valuing Nature International Summit is intended for early-career researchers (PhDs, postdoc or other) with an interest in international work. It will benefit people who have made a start on building their international research network. It is not intended for researchers who have already been in leadership roles in research projects or who have extensive international experience.

Likely Location

Manchester Metropolitan University or, if necessary, an online Webinar.
