University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute


Building links among young conservation scientists and practitioners.

The conference series aims to bring together conservation scientists in the early stages of their research careers. SCCS also uses its location in Cambridge to build firm links between the new generation of conservation scientists and the many national and international conservation agencies based nearby.

The conference has an internship scheme, which is available for conference delegates from developing and eastern European countries. This scheme enables student delegates to spend up to one month after the conference with a UK-based NGO or university department carrying out a conservation science-related project of mutual interest.

Internship applicants are required to submit their application by 14 October 2019 so that the host has time to respond to the application for an internship. Interns are required to attend the conference and should apply for that too.
The closing date for all applications to the conference is 20 October 2019 at 10:00pm (BST).

Further information about the Student Conference on Conservation Science and details of how to apply can be found on our brand new website:
