ISTF Innovation Prize

5th Annual ISTF Innovation Prize

Deadline: November 17, 2017
  

Since 2014, Yale ISTF has offered an Innovation Prize at its annual conference to honor outstanding initiatives and ideas related to tropical forest use and conservation. In 2018, the Yale Chapter of the International Society of Tropical Foresters (ISTF) will bestow our 5th Annual Innovation Prize. During the conference, the Innovation Prize presentations are moments when the theme of the conference is grounded in concrete case-studies and experiences. 

In line with the theme for the 2018 ISTF Conference, we are looking for innovative projects that deal with complex problems in tropical forest landscapes. All individuals or groups with a unique perspective, experience, or approach to the complexity of tropical forest landscapes are encouraged to apply. The Innovation Prize winner and runner-up will both be invited to Yale to present their project to conference attendees and receive a cash prize.
