Event Details

The Biodiversity Science Conference will once again be linked to a British Ecological Society policy training day for Early Career Researchers. Both will be held at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

The BES training day will take place immediately before the science conference on the 8th November. The training day will give early career scientists an insight into the processes of environmental policy making, including an understanding of how to feed research results into the policy making process. It will involve talks from those involved in environmental policy making, as well as interactive sessions and opportunities for networking.

The Biodiversity Science Conference on 9th November will explore the relationships between people and the environment. These are central to both driving and addressing the major current threats to biodiversity. There is growing concern that many people are becoming increasingly disconnected from their environment. Conserving biodiversity, and sustainably managing our environment, needs an understanding of how people interact with the environment to produce the benefits that they receive, and to find ways to overcome barriers to sustainable management. Addressing and understanding these issues – which are at the heart of current efforts to conserve biodiversity – needs a wide range of research skills and disciplines. Reflecting this the Biodiversity Science Conference is aiming to take a multi-disciplinary look at the ways in which people and their environment interact, and the consequences of this for sustainable land management and biodiversity conservation in Scotland.

The BES Policy Training day - Tuesday 8 November 2016 – commences with registration at 09:30, finishing 17.30.

The Biodiversity Science Conference commences on evening of 8 November with the Keynote Speaker and evening reception at 19:00; continuing on Wednesday 9 November 2016 from 09.30 - 16:00 (GMT). Programme

Tickets can be booked for separate or combined parts of the two days of events e.g. BES policy training day only; policy training day + science conference; policy training day + evening reception + science conference. Discounts are available for CIEEM and BES members, and for those booking for both the training day and the science conference.

15 bursaries to make a contribution to travel & accommodation are available for early career researchers (PhD students and those no more than 5 years post-PhD) - these are by reimbursement and on a first come first served basis. The budget limit is £70. Please contact:
