Map of venue

The Research Councils are launching a new funding scheme for research in systematics and taxonomy. The Systematics and Taxonomy (SynTax) scheme is designed to provide short-term funding for preliminary research that will form the basis of novel responsive mode proposals with a substantial systematics/taxonomy component.

The scheme aims to stimulate high quality taxonomy and systematics-related research proposals to the UK’s Research Councils.

The scheme follows on from the Collaborative Systematics (CoSyst) scheme, through which a number of projects have gone on to receive responsive mode funding.


The launch event will provide details of the SynTax scheme and will showcase successful projects funded under its predecessor CoSyst.

Tea will be served in the library from 5.30pm and the lecture will be followed by a wine reception and poster session.
