The Foundation Chair Prince Bernhard supports the activities of the Chair. The Chair serves international nature conservation through strengthening the link between conservation science and practice, while opening new avenues for multidisciplinary approaches.__
It is doing so by:
(1) stimulating innovative interdisciplinary research and driving science-based international conservation/restoration efforts,
(2) training Dutch and international students (BSc, MSc and PhD) and supervising researchers (including postdocs) in international aspects of nature conservation,
(3) raising awareness of pressing conservation issues and research and establishing policy priorities.
The activities of the chair are carried out in close contact with the University of Utrecht (UU) and external partners.
