Education and training

Training professionals for the rapidly evolving field of Conservation Biology is essential for securing a future for our natural heritage. We achieve this by fostering science education and training as part of our strategic objectives. The CRC research team contributes to the education and training of students and young researchers in biology and veterinary medicine, and is actively involved in lecturing students at universities and colleges in Belgium and the Netherlands. We provide internships and (co)supervise student projects, and offer MSc and PhD positions in conservation biology and veterinary sciences. In an avarage year a total of 40 Bachelor and Masters students write a thesis as part of a CRC research project, and 8 PhD students work towards the completion of their PhD degrees. In addition, the CRC invests in building scientific capacity in developing countries by providing research training opportunities for Cameroonian, Congolese and Brazilian students and conservation professionals.
