The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) is currently accepting nominations for the 2018 Young Researchers Award. This annual programme aims to foster innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics by graduate students whose master’s and doctoral studies rely on GBIF-mediated data.
A pilot project, 'Science Meets Parliament / Science Meets Regions' is being funded by the European Parliament in 2018. This call for expression of interest wants to bring together partners to organise events under the full ownership of the relevant authorities. The commission is exploring the possibility of funding up to 28 different events with up to €30,000 in funding.
The Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) is responsible for the implementation of the open call for proposals for Research and Innovation Actions (RIAs), Innovation Actions (IAs - DEMOs and FLAGs) and Coordination and Support Actions (CSAs), in line with the Horizon 2020 rules for participation. The call has recently opened, and will remain so until September.
This call is the fifth in a total of seven calls between 2014 and 2020. The Call comprises of four main strategic orientations: Feedstock, Process, Products, and Market uptake.
The CORBEL partners have launched a 2nd Open Call for research projects to meet the prevailing need for combined service provision from multiple research infrastructures across Europe. Taking on board lessons learned from the 1st CORBEL Open Call launched in 2016 and the services running since then, this will continue to provide all academic and industrial scientists in Europe with the opportunity to accelerate their research.
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships are open to a wide number of researchers across many different fields of research. There are two types of Fellowships, European and Global.
The European Fellowships are:

- Those seeking to restart a research career after a break, such as parental leave.
- Individuals coming back to Europe looking to find a new position.
On the other hand, the Global Fellowships:
Call for proposals are now open for the second cycle of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. This second cycle is entitled 'Implementation of the new GES Decision and Programmes of Measures'.

The Institute for Pacific Coral Reefs (IRCP) and the CRIOBE (Centre for Island Research and Environmental Observatory) will offer four grants in 2018 to young scientists (PhDs and Post-doctorates, under 35 years old) for research projects focused on the coral reefs of French Polynesia. Grants will be available to both French nationals and foreigners. To support the advancement of science in the Pacific, one of the four award recipients will come from the South Pacific Islands.
In 2018 (as in 2017), EuroMarine organises two distinct, parallel calls:
- A call for proposals of activities (the present call)
- A call for application for individual fellowships (targeting EuroMarine PhD students and scholars in their first post-doctoral position, to let them attend an advanced course of their choice)
The general terms of both calls have been preannounced on 5 March 2018.
The 2018 edition of the SCOR annual meeting, which is taking place from 4-6 September in Plymouth, United Kingdom, currently has calls for access open.
