Grant Opportunities: SoilBON Archive Data Mobilization Grant

Must read

Deadline: 10-Jul-22

The Global Soil Biodiversity Initiative (GSBI) is inviting researchers/research groups from the group of SoilBON collaborators, for projects and processes related to digital data mobilization of already collected soil biodiversity data.

This initiative aims to substantially increase the amount of species distribution data openly available at GBIF and, with that, improve the capacity of soil ecologists around the world to address key ecological questions.

These funds are made available through a collaboration between SoilBON and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF).

All data submitted through this initiative should make use of available standardization tools provided by GBIF and uploaded though the SoilBON GBIF node. Attribution of the data, as well as the credits for the dataset remain with the data provider.

Funding Information

Up to $5000 USD per project; 5-7 projects funded

Criteria
  • Applications (researchers and data) coming from underrepresented regions will be given preference.
  • The applications should comply with open access criteria and the data mobilized through the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) in support of the soil ecology community.
Selection Criteria
  • Sufficient evidence that the candidate and its capacity can deliver the project
  • Evaluation of the proposal itself:
    • the feasibility of the proposed work,
  • Gap filling:
    • the particular taxa or taxonomic group being targeted by the proposal
    • and the overall regional coverage of the proposal.
  • Each criterion will be given a classification of one to five and an overall score will be assigned, with all proposals being ranked and funded until the total amount of funds is granted. Gender and region will be two critical factors when considering the attribution of funds. This means that for similar overall proposal scores, women and developing regions will be given preference in funding.
